Keep Toronto Reading Festival: Readers Respond

On Saturday, I hosted a call in show where listeners shared their favourite book titles and what they were reading. The show was inspired by the Toronto Public Library's Keep Toronto Reading Festival (April 1-30). I'm reading Olivia Goes to Venice, one is a series of books by Ian Falconer. Here is what they had to say:




Kirk likes: She's Come Undone and is reading I Know This Much is True both by Wally Lamb (photo courtesy of TPL)










Gord is reading: Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray and likes the mysteries by Jo Nesbo (The Redbreast, Nemesis) and Tales of the City books by Armistead Maupin (photo courtesy of TPL)









Renée is reading: The Bad Girl by Mario Vargas Llosa (photo from TPL)














Cristian's favourite is: The Elephant Man by Tim Vicary (photo from TPL) By calling in, Cristian won a pair of tickets to see Afrobeat legend, Tony Allen at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.










Marek is reading: American Project: The Rise of and Fall of an American Ghetto by Sudhir Alladi Venkatesh (photo from TPL)










Annie likes alternative comics like Lose #3 by Michael De Forge, the anthology, Root Rot, the kid's comic, Monster Party and the depressed cat comic, Cat Rackham Loses It by Steve Wolfhard (photo courtesy of http://koyamapress.com/) Keep Toronto Reading Info: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/ktr/
