The second I walked into Global TV’s The Morning Show offices people wanted to talk to me about books they were reading or ask for recommendations because I was ‘The Book Lover’.
Once a month I have the unique opportunity to share a selection of books I curate for a wide variety of tastes based on the hope of finding a book for everyone of all ages.
We love our city, and our book ride has the ability to connect neighbourhoods, readers, and changemakers, resulting in concrete, lasting improvements for Toronto: promoting complete streets, supporting local businesses, and highlighting literacy.
The Canadian Ecology Centre hosted its inaugural Earth Day Book Talk in 2016 with three leading authors who provided a link to how nature is captured in their prose.
2017 expanded to include a Family Program and our key note speaker was Diana Beresford-Kroeger.
For the third annual Earth Day at CEC, the program will increase in length to include two days of writer’s workshops, family day and the Book Talk evening! Please join us to celebrate Earth Day alongside the historic Mattawa River!
My role as Co-Captain of Cycle Toronto’s Ward 13 Bike Group is to promote cycling in my community. This is both through community events to assist cyclists and increase the public’s exposure to cyclists but also at the political level to advocate for better cycling infrastructure, making cycling safer both for the well-being of present cyclists, and to encourage more people to cycle.
The goal of this 100in1day urban intervention is to slow down traffic on one street for one day because there’s a story here and you’re missing it.
The intention is not to stop the traffic but to slow down the pace of the roadway so that everyone feels safe.
Slow Down Jane. Take a look at what’s around you. Slow Down Jane. Maybe we’ll inspire you to pull over and appreciate the art that is all around you. Slow Down Jane.
The Word On The Street is a national celebration of literacy and the written word. Each September, in communities coast to coast, the public is invited to participate in hundreds of author events, presentations, workshops, and to browse a marketplace that boasts the best selection of Canadian books and magazines you’ll find anywhere. There is always plenty to see and do at Canada’s largest book and magazine festival, and best of all, The Word On The Street and all of its events are FREE!
