Join Terri Favro on June 2 at 6:30pm ET at See-Scape Sci-Fi Bar & Gaming Cafe to celebrate the launch of her sci-fi novel, The Sisters Sputnik (ECW Press, May 2022)!

Hosted by author Eufemia Fantetti, the free Toronto Lit Up event will feature actors performing a dramatic reading from The Sisters Sputnik with Terri Favro. Attendees are encouraged to dress in cosplay as their favourite sci-fi or comic book character! Light refreshments will be provided. A cash bar will also be available.

In the sequel to Sputnik’s Children, The Sisters Sputnik takes ‘undocumented time immigrant’ Debbie Reynolds Biondi and her apprentice Unicorn Girl on a wild ride through alternate worlds, into a possible future where robots rule and humans are banished to the past. It’s an odyssey wrapped in a love story, set in a near-future of artificial people. You can get your copy of the book from Queen Books here.


Toronto Lit Up is a multi-year initiative, started in 2016 by the Toronto International Festival of Authors and the Toronto Arts Council, to spotlight Toronto writers and empower local artists with career-building opportunities. Between April 2016 and January 2022, Toronto Lit Up has produced 128 events that launched 152 books by 226 local authors. Toronto Lit Up book launches take place throughout the year at venues across the city. They are open to the public and free to attend. Click here for more information.
