The event is brought to Brampton by a partnership between Brampton Library and the Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD), an arts organization that holds Brampton’s biggest annual literary festival, is adding this series to their roster of events.
“Every year, the [FOLD] provides a meaningful experience for Brampton residents and visitors,” said Jael Richardson, artistic director of the FOLD in a recent statement. “We wanted to find a way to give people a little taste of that literary goodness throughout the year.
What can you expect at the first event on February 8, 2018?
Well, popular author Karl Subban (father to NHL stars P.K., Malcolm, and Jordan) will be the first writer for the series. Subban has an inspiring story about the journey through hockey leagues, from house league to the big leagues.
Richardson will host a Q&A after the performance, and then there will be a book signing of Subban’s latest release, How We Did It: The Subban Plan for Success in Hockey, School and Life, written with author and journalist Scott Colby.
