May 18 | Stroll book launch at Lula Lounge
This May, Coach House Books publishes Shawn Micallef's first book Stroll: Psychogeographic Walking Tours of Toronto, featuring illustrations and maps by Marlena Zuber. We're holding a rollicking launch party on Tuesday, May 18, and everyone's invited!
Stroll by Shawn Micallef ([murmur], Spacing, Eye Weekly, Yonge Street) celebrates Toronto’s details at the speed of walking and helps us better know its many neighbourhoods, taking us from well-known spots like the CN Tower and Pearson Airport to the overlooked corners of Scarborough and all the way to the end of the Leslie Street Spit in Lake Ontario. The book features thirty-two walks, a flâneur manifesto, a foreword by architecture critic John Bentley Mays, dozens of hand-drawn maps and illustrations by Marlena Zuber and a full-colour fold-out orientation map of Toronto.
The launch for Stroll will be held on Tuesday, May 18, at the Lula Lounge (1585 Dundas Street). Be there as Eye Weekly's Edward Keenan interviews Shawn Micallef live on-stage! We'll also have snacks and maps and cap it all off with a dance party, DJ'ed by the Track Meet trio.
