Details

The Literary Death Match features a mix of four writers who perform their most electric work (for seven minutes or less) before a huge audience, and a panel of three all-star judges who take turns spouting affectionate, off-the-wall commentary about each story (meanness is never a factor, as judges are there for non-sequiturs and comedy, not serious critique). Two writers are selected as finalists and advance to the finals where we trade in the show’s literary sensibility for an absurdly comical climax to decide the winner.

This event will include Claudia Dey (Harper Collins), Ibi Kaslik (Penguin Canada), Susan Holbrook (Coach House Books), and Andrew Kaufman (Random House) who will pair off cage-match style to battle in seven minute segments for the Literary Death Match crown. The world-wide LDM franchise finally comes to Toronto -- literary spectacle and general shenanigans will ensue.

Doors open at 7 pm, show starts at 8:15 (sharp).

Cost: $8 at the door, $5 preorder, $5 for students with a valid student ID. Please see http://is.gd/fOv43 to purchase.
