Fresh & Local: Your connection to Toronto's vibrant literary scene

Dear Readers,

With August on the horizon (tomorrow!), some may say the summer is half over, but we like to focus on the weeks left to put our feet up, read stacks of good books and enjoy the sunshine. Visit OpenBookToronto.com for reading suggestions, author interviews, book news and more.

PRISCILA UPPAL IN LONDON
"I must also try to write a poem for every sport category. And I can’t bore my audience. I want to give them an exciting, surprising and satisfying experience of the games." Priscila Uppal talks to Open Book about her role as poet-in-residence at the Olympic Games. Read it here.

NEW INTERVIEWS
Our latest interviews are with a stellar group of authors and editors: Michael Kelly, Barbara Lambert, Robyn Sarah, Rachel Hartman, Anita Lahey and Denise Jaden.

CHRISTIAN BÖK MAKES HIS POETRY COME ALIVE
Jeremy Colangelo writes about Christian Bök's latest project.
