BOOKS & LIT | "Hidden Toronto" Book Launch
Photographer Kathy Toth searched back alleys and explored under bridges to find the art of Hidden Toronto, her new book that documents the unusual canvasses that graffiti artists use. Capturing cityscapes and urban dwellings where Toronto's artists have left their mark, Toth has created what is essentially a map of the best in the city's street art. The book launch takes place tonight at Swipe tonight with the author and several artists in attendance. Copies of the book will be available at the event.
Swipe (401 Richmond Street) 5PM Free

BOOKS & LIT | TTC One Book Club
Don't be surprised if you see multiple people on the TTC reading the same book in the coming months as the TTC One Book Club launches today. City-wide, readers will be encouraged by TTC platform screens to join this book club where opinions are shared on Twitter, using the hashtag #OneBookTTC. This month's book is Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Join the club by tweeting your thoughts on the daily topic that will appear every 10 minutes throughout the day on the Pattison Onestop TTC screens until April 21st. Not a reader? Coincidentally, there is a screening of the Francois Truffaut film adaptation of the book at North York Central Library tonight.
