Christmas Shopping and Cocktails. Together at last.

Listen, I know book launches and readings are deadly dull. But not this one, okay? For one thing, it's part of the "This is Not a Reading Series," which means I couldn't read from my book even if I wanted to. I promise this is not that kind of event where you all stand there, sipping some not quite properly chilled Ontario wine-from-a-box, in silence, while I bore you to tears with my observations about my navel. Instead, we'll be drinking cocktails - I'll be making some cocktails - the event is sponsored by Maxxium, so we should be able to get some free cocktails - and, well, you get the idea.

Just scroll past Margaret Atwood, Thomas King and Deepa Mehta and you'll find the listing at this link:

Tue, Nov 8th, 7-11pm (doors 7pm)Pages Books & Magazines, NOW Magazine, McArthur & Co., and Maxxium present: CHRISTINE SISMONDO in a night of mixology and frivolity celebrating her new book of cocktails Mondo Cocktail: A Shaken and Stirred History @ Lot 16, 1136 Queen St W, Toronto
