NOW HEAR THIS!, Toronto's arts-based literacy organization, is counting down the days to its first event of the fall, the fourth installment of its HEAR/HEAR Reading Series.

Having settled comfortably into new digs at Toronto institution and intimate home of folk, The Free Times Cafe (320 College Street), will open the doors for dinner and drinks from The Free Times' well-loved menu at 6pm. This FREE, ALL AGES Reading Series showcases work from the impressive roster of NOW HEAR THIS! Writers-in-Residence.
HEAR/HEAR celebrates local authors who are spreading excitement about writing to youth in our community through NHT!'s literacy workshops. This month's line up features Desi Di Nardo, Larry Frolick and Mary-Lou Zeitoun, who will spend the evening reading new work. A special door prize give-away has been sponsored by another local literary fixture, This Ain't the Rosedale Library.
