Thursday, April 21, 2016

Funeral director, classic car nut, wildlife enthusiast, and mystery author, the dynamic and hilarious A.B. Funkhauser (Heuer Lost and Found; just released Scooter Nation) will regale us with the real behind-the-scenes of her work and how this feeds into the inspiration for her writing. Said one reviewer of her book, “I was expecting a gonzo ride on par with Carl Hiaasen…what I got was something just as crazy, but with an emotional wallop.”

We meet on the THIRD THURSDAY every month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in Room 200 at the Toronto Public Library, Northern District Branch, 40 Orchard View Blvd (just a block north of Eglinton subway station on Yonge, or half a block west of Yonge). Take the elevator in the lobby to the second floor. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please note: a $5 fee is charged for non-members.

Join Us!

Interested in supper before the meeting? Starting around 5:30 p.m. (and a few will likely arrive earlier) some of us will get together for dinner at the HO SU Bistro, 2352 Yonge St. It’s just around the corner from the library. The food is Japanese and Korean and the prices are very reasonable.
