Toronto Public Library Homepage

That is, the Toronto Public Library will be at Monarch Park Collegiate for the win … YOUR win, lucky student! Here’s why:

A librarian from TPL will be here to answer ALL your questions about volunteering, reading programs, database research, magazine and video downloads, and more.  This is happening Tuesday, May 20th at lunch, upstairs in the library.

Another win: TPL is bringing author Debra Anderson to speak about writing and answer any questions you might have.  TPL is bringing her in as a special event for World Pride.  Two English classes have signed up already, but if you would like to come on your own, sign up in the library. This is happening Friday, May 23rd in Period C, in Ferguson Hall. 

Here’s her bio:

Debra Anderson is the recipient of the Writers’ Trust of Canada’s prestigious Dayne Debra AndersonOgilvie Prize, given to an emerging Canadian writer from the LGBT community and is a graduate of York University’s Creative Writing Program. Debra has taught innovative Creative Writing Workshops at Word on the Street and to various youth organizations and writing groups. She has lectured across Canada as a guest author and her writing has been widely anthologized. Her novel, Code White is taught at York University in WMST 1510 – ‘Sex, Gender & Popular Culture’ (2014). Broken Pencil Magazine described Code White as “the kind of book that those ‘chick lit’ books have nightmares about.”
