“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
- Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
Authors have the incredible ability of arousing emotion from the first word in Chapter One to the last before The End. As an avid reader myself, I’ve always loved escaping through the pages of a new book only to discover something new about myself at the end. On February 6th, book lovers gathered at the Fairmont Royal York for the 9th Book Lover’s Ball with Canada’s top literary talents for Toronto Public Library. Some of the authors in attendance at the black-tie fundraiser included: Kevin Kwan (Crazy Rich Asians), Andrew Pyper (The Demonologist), Neil Pasricha (The Book of Awesome) and Kevin O’Leary (Cold Hard Truth on Family, Kids & Money).
Our favourite part of this unforgettable evening was the novel inspired entertainment which consisted of the following:
Empress of the State (Dresses designed by Caras)
The Cellist of Sarajevo
The Returned & Intolerable
The Hunger Games (Dresses designed by Ines Di Santo)
Until next time, keep reading!
