Open Bar 2: Rebecca Rosenblum

Share |

In the second Open Bar, able drinker Ian Daffern talks to author Rebecca Rosenblum about her favourite Toronto patio, the Victory Cafe. Along the way hear how her short story collection Once got started, her undying love of bars, and the joys of being on your feet.

Open Bar is a cocktail of photos and conversation from your favourite authors; serving up stories of their trusted locals for writing and relaxing; discussing their latest book or their drink of choice.

Open Bar is created by Ian Daffern and Liz Walker, features photography by Dave Kemp, and is produced for Open Book Toronto.

The views expressed in the Writer-in-Residence blogs are those held by the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Open Book: Toronto.
