IFOA and ECW Press invite you to the release of A Brief History of Oversharing by Shawn Hitchins as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series.



“Comedian Shawn Hitchins explores his irreverent nature in this debut collection of essays. Hitchins doesn’t shy away from his failures or celebrate his mild successes — he sacrifices them for an audience’s amusement.”





Toronto Lit Up is a three year initiative, spearheaded by the Toronto Arts Council and IFOA, designed to spotlight Toronto’s writers and empower local artists with career-building opportunities.
