We were excited to bring you the Toronto Lit Up launch of BIG: Stories about Life in Plus-Sized Bodies, edited by Christina Myers, live in person on March 17, 2020. However, the event has been postponed due to social distancing efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. In the meantime, we are pleased to bring you video readings from the book, by its editor, Christina Myers, and several of its Toronto-based contributors (Emily Allan, Shadoe Ball, Tara Mandarano and Amanda Scriver). You can purchase the anthology wherever books are sold, and keep watch for a new event date coming in the future.
The Toronto Lit Up programme is designed to spotlight new works and empower Toronto’s writers through book launches. Toronto Lit Up is funded by the Toronto Arts Council and spearheaded by Toronto International Festival of Authors.
