While I’m in North America, I’ll be doing some readings — starting off with 2 in Toronto on Wed 6 March and Wed 13 March.

First up, I’m giving a reading as part of the regular series Readings at The Common. Readings at the Common is a neighbourhood reading series, held on the first Wednesday of the month at 8pm. The venue is cozy, minimalist, intimate, and candlelit. I’ll be reading for 10 minutes.

Wed 6 March, 8pm
The Common, 1071 College St. West, Toronto

Featuring:

  • Irene Marques (poet, novelist, and short story writer who writes in English and Portuguese)
  • Angel Beyde (author and multidisciplinary artist)
  • Tom Cho

For more details, please visit the Facebook event.

I’ll also have 2 copies of Look Who’s Morphing for sale, but if I happen to run out, Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto is currently stocking copies. Speaking of which…

The following Wednesday, I’m giving a longer reading at Glad Day Bookshop, apparently the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookshop. Also on the bill is Matthew Trafford, a local, award-winning fiction writer and an improv performer. Here are the details from the event blurb:

Inventive short fiction writer Tom Cho arrives from Australia in a dual reading with Toronto’s own Matthew Trafford that will mess with all you hold dear!

Wed 13 March, 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Glad Day Bookshop, 598 Yonge St, Toronto

There’s also a Facebook event link here.

PS Coming up: possibly a reading in Vancouver on 28 March and possibly a reading in Montreal before that, confirmed readings in Boston on 3 May and Oakland on 8 June, and perhaps others to be added! If you want to book me for a reading or you have contacts who I should approach, please get in touch.
