Toronto Public Library presents Chelene Knight

September 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Facilitated by host David Chariandy, Chelene Knight will discuss her debut novel, Junie, a riveting exploration of the complexity within the mother-daughter relationship. Intimate and urgent, Junie is an unflinching tale of the dynamic vitality and eventual destruction of the once thriving Black and immigrant community of Vancouver’s former Hogan’s Alley neighborhood.

This is an in-person event. Drop-in, no registration required.
