Jul 11 | The Scream in High Park
After eighteen years of doing the improbable, the Scream Literary Festival is closing its doors this summer. Among several 'unFestival' events affiliated with the fest, the Scream is also having two more shows: an opening night reading on Thursday, July 7 and wake to celebrate the festival, and a Mainstage in High Park on Monday, July 11 to end it where it began.
The Scream performers will include Coach House's own Shawn Micallef (Stroll: Psychogeographic Walking Tours of Toronto), Gary Barwin (The Porcupinity of the Stars), Margaret Christakos (What Stirs), Mark Truscott (Said Like Reeds or Things) and Christian Bok (Eunoia), as well several other talented performers like Misha Glouberman and Sheila Heti, Angela Szcezepaniak, Darren Wershler, Aisha Sasha John and Dani Couture. Here's the full lineup for the evening:
Gary Barwin and Gregory Betts
