On Sunday, November 9, Coach House Books, This Is Not A Reading Series and Fort York National Historic Site present the launch of HTO: Toronto's Water from Lake Iroquois to Lost Rivers to Low-flow Toilets, edited by Wayne Reeves and Christina Palassio, a book that takes the plunge to provide an in-depth look at the city's water -- past, present and future. We hope you can join us for the celebration.
To celebrate the publication of HTO, This Is Not A Reading Series, Coach House Books and Fort York launch the book in style at historic Fort York's Blue Barracks. Doors open at 2 p.m. Then at 2:30 p.m., Spacing's Matt Blackett moderates a panel discussion on the future of Toronto's water, featuring HTO contributors Jennifer Bonnell, Kim Storey, John Lorinc, Gary Miedema, Shawn Micallef and Helen Mills.
Following the panel, guests can either join contributor David Robertson on a guided walking tour of the Fort in relation to Garrison Creek and the original lakeshore, or stay and discuss Toronto's water more informally over a few refreshments in the Blue Barracks.
