gritLIT Hamilton’s Literary Festival

I’m looking forward to Hamilton Reads tonight, the event that kicks off gritLIT. GritLIT is a literary festival  in Hamilton Ontario that includes a variety of readings and workshops. If you’re in the Hamilton area you should check it out, the opening event starts tonight at 7:30 (doors open at 7:00pm) but there will be events throughout the rest of the week as well as this weekend. Here’s the schedule of events.

And here’s the blurb from the Hamilton Public Library’s website for Hamilton Reads:

On Wednesday, March 28th, 2012, gritLIT: Hamilton’s Literary Festival, in partnership with the Hamilton Public Library, will launch Hamilton Reads. Ten local luminaries will converge on the Central Library, each committed to defending to the death one of the titles on the Ontario Library Association’s Evergreen Reading List.

Well, maybe not to the death, but there should be some impassioned and creative defenses of the ten chosen titles

Sounds good to me!
