Book Launch for "Jane & Edward" - a Modern, Toronto-set Re-Telling of Jane Eyre
Tue Mar 21. 6-8pm
Queen Books (914 Queen St East)
Author Melodie Edwards' debut novel, "Jane & Edward" is a Toronto-set, modern re-telling of the classic novel, Jane Eyre. But in this version, "Mr. Rochester" is a senior partner at a Bay street law firm, working at the top floor of BMO Tower. And "Jane" is his newly-arrived struggling assistant commuting in from Port Credit. Readers can enjoy the all-too rare experience of seeing their own city brought to life in novel-form. From Jane's commute on the GO Train, to adventures in the PATH, crossing paths in Union Station, and romantic date nights in the Distillery District!
Books will be on sale and the author will be doing a Q&A with Rachel McMillan.
Free admission and all book-lovers welcome!
