My first time on Global TV’s The Morning Show was in October 2014. Since that time, this Book Lover has had a unique opportunity to curate and share a wide variety books for all reading tastes based on the goal of finding a story 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 Earth Day BOOK TALK was launched as a fundraiser for the CEC Educational Foundation in 2016. Authors shared how nature influenced their writing. In 2017 a family eco program was added. WORDS IN THE WOODS in 2018 included a full day of writing workshops, a family program with a children’s author and our renowned Book Talk Fundraiser with keynote speaker Kate Harris.
Creating connections and awareness of the natural world through words and literacy is our mission.
We will be expanding again in 2019 and I am overJOYed to be a part of this naturally inspiring festival.
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.
