Details

Toronto’s vibrant literary, art and indie rock worlds will come together at Storybook Confidential, a night for grownups in support of Small Print Toronto’s interactive literary programs for children, taking place on Monday, September 16th at The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St West), 7:30pm (Doors 7pm). All Tickets Pay-What-You-Can (at Door Only).

Local literary luminaries – including Kyle Buckley, Claire Caldwell, Stacey May Fowles, James Grainger, Evan Munday, Grace O’Connell, Damian Rogers, Kevin Sylvester, Ania Szabo, Natalie Zina Walschots, Jessica Westhead, Nathan Whitlock and Liz Worth – will read stories they wrote when they were kids.

Top picture book artists, designers and illustrators – including Angela Fedele, Clayton Hanmer (CTON), Walker Ballantyne-Hill, Matt James, Hilary Leung, Frank Viva, Chris Wilkie, and Cybèle Young – will offer semi-permanent tattoos at a Body Art booth.

These stellar authors and artists will also take turns at a “Make Me A Storybook” booth, where they will produce short illustrated tales based on suggestions from the audience.

Bring your dancing shoes. Such leading lights of the Toronto indie music scene as Don Kerr, Kevin Lacroix and Bellwoods Trinity will perform original tunes. And DJ Pete Wilson will spin golden tracks of roughly the same vintage as the authors’ early work (80s/90s).

Prepare to be dazzled. Celebrated craft artist Kalpna Patel, perhaps best known for her remarkable windows at TYPE Books on Queen St West, will design and dress the Gladstone Ballroom.

Don’t miss the first-ever Small Print Toronto extravaganza where parents are encouraged to leave their kids at home!
