Massey Hall and Penguin Random House present another instalment this autumn of Torn from the Pages. Born from the imagination of Rheostatic Dave Bidini, Torn From the Pages is “an evening where the worlds of books and music collide, a frisson of prose and melody” inspired by the work of a single artist. Past events have focussed on the work of authors Timothy Taylor, Michael Crummey , Steve Heighton and Miriam Toews.
This fall’s chosen author is Nino Ricci. Curated and hosted by Dave Bidini and featuring Nobu Adilman, Tony Dekker, Oh Susanna, Corin Raymond, Lucas Silveira and Michael Winter, the evening will debut newly-commissioned songs, stories, poems and more inspired by Ricci’s novel Sleep.
Catch Torn from the Pages at the following venues:
- Thursday, November 12, 2015 ~ 8 PM ~ Harbourfront Centre Theatre, Toronto
- Friday, November 13, 2015 ~ Books & Company ~ Picton, Ontario
