| || ||
Toronto - The Toronto Public Library's tribute to the 25th Anniversary of the
busy reference library at Yonge and Bloor continues all this fall.
This week's special event is a panel discussion on public spaces with Toronto
architects Phillip Carter, Jack Diamond, Michael Kirkland and Eberhard Zeidler
and Globe & Mail Cityspace columnist Lisa Rochon. Design for Urban Space, is at
6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.
Highlights of upcoming November events include a reading by Alistair MacLeod,
winner of the 2001 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, a presentation by David Foot,
author of Boom, Bust & Echo and a rare view into success - and the creative
life - with film producer Robert Lantos.
"This is a public gathering space where people have been exchanging ideas for a
quarter-century," City Librarian Jo Bryant points out, "and we want to let
everyone know that we are proud of this vibrant and important meeting place."
November events continue with a focus on music, art, politics and literature.
Novelist Michelle Berry, cultural and political theorist Mark Kingwell, artist
Doris McCarthy, poet Paul Savoie and musician Kerry Stratton all contribute to
the idea exchange.
These events and others happen at the Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge
Street, one block north of Bloor and Yonge. All events are free. For more
