Luminato Literary Walk: Queen Street W., the Dark Side with author Andrew Pyper
A complimentary shuttle will leave at 2:45PM from A Literary Picnic at the Trinity Bellwoods Park gates on Queen Street West to the starting point of each of the approximately 75 minute walks. If you would like to meet at the specific starting point of each walk, this information will be provided after ticket purchase.
Novelists and storytellers occupy the middle space between the world as it is and as it is represented in art. They are seers through which all the stories and memories of a landscape, a city or a neighbourhood are gathered and revealed. Join critically acclaimed and bestselling novelists Cary Fagan, Andrew Pyper and Alissa York as they share the secrets, inspiration and third places along walks through neighbourhoods of Toronto that have been critical to their work and the literature of others. Luminato's Literary Walks are unique and exclusive opportunities to partake of Unseen Toronto and of the vibrant imaginations of writers revealing these places to us through unforgettable characters and lasting stories that shine a light upon other times but also our own.
Andrew Pyper is the author of six novels, most recently The Demonologist, which was a #1 national bestseller in Canada. His previous books include Lost Girls (New York Times Notable Book and winner of the Arthur Ellis Award), The Guardians (a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year), and The Killing Circle (a New York Times Crime Novel of the Year). The Demonologist is in active development for feature film with producer/director Robert Zemeckis and Universal Pictures. Please note that while it is not necessary for enjoyment of the walk, Andrew suggests that the experience will certainly be enhanced by having read The Killing Circle (Doubleday Canada), available in electronic format and in all good bookstores.
