Dive in to two delightful debuts from Toronto-based rom-com authors Lily Chu and Sonya Singh. Chu’s The Stand-In reveals how a life can turn on its head when a young woman is asked to become an official stand in for a famous Chinese cinema actress with whom she shares an uncanny resemblance. Singh’s instant national bestseller, Sari, Not Sari, is an ode to her own personal dating experiences, and follows the adventures of a relationship-averse business woman trying to connect with her South Asian roots with the help of unlikely companion. The authors will share how they balance light-hearted storytelling with poignant themes of parental death, culture and identity.

This event will be moderated by Marlowe Granados.
