Get Lit

On May 12th at 7 p.m. the 5th annual Get Lit event is taking place at the Appel Salon in the Toronto Reference Library. Get Lit is a magical and unique fundraiser in support of The KidsFest Running and Reading Club, an after-school program that "effectively addresses the benefits of literacy and physical activity for children living in poverty." The annual event features a very intriguing line-up of notable and fascinating Canadians who each read from and discuss a piece of writing that had a profound effect on them. This year's list includes: Carolyn Bennett (Member of Parliament, St. Paul's), Michael Bryant (Toronto lawyer and former politician), Neil Hetherington (CEO, Habitat for Humanity Toronto), Adam van Koeverden (Olympic and World Champion Kayaker), Marianne McKenna (Founding partner of KPMB Architects), Carol Off (Host of CBC Radio's As It Happens) and Margaret Wente (Globe & Mail columnist).
