Details

This May, Coach House Books is proud to publish Shawn Micallef's first book STROLL: PSYCHOGEOGRAPHIC WALKING TOURS OF TORONTO, featuring illustrations and maps by Marlena Zuber. Do not miss this rollicking launch party !

Shawn Micallef has been involved with such city-based projects and publications as [murmur], Spacing, Eye Weekly and the new Yonge Street online magazine. His book (a co-publication with Eye Weekly) features a collection of Micallef's psychogeographic reportages -- some of which have been featured in Eye Weekly (and since expanded) -- that situate Toronto’s buildings and streets in living, breathing detail, and tell us about the people who use them, the ways they are being used and how they are evolving.

The book features thirty-two walks, a flâneur manifesto, a foreword by architecture critic John Bentley Mays, dozens of hand-drawn maps and illustrations by Marlena Zuber and a full-colour fold-out orientation map of Toronto.

Be at the book launch as Eye Weekly's Edward Keenan chats with Shawn live on-stage! There will also be a number of fun activities and cap it all off with a dance party, DJ'ed by the Track Meet crew.
