Upcoming Toronto and Vancouver Events for C'mon Papa

My new book, C’mon Papa: Dispatches from a Dad in the Dark, is about to arrive. Below are some launch events that will take place in Vancouver and Toronto over the next two weeks. Come if you can.

Hell, come if you can’t.

Wednesday, May 5, Toronto. 7:30 PM.
Harbourfront Centre, the Brigantine Room.
235 Queen’s Quay West
Phone: 416.973.4760 for tickets.
A reading from C’mon Papa to be followed by an onstage interview with Erica Ehm. Yes, that Erica Ehm. I’m not even in a band.

Sunday, May 9, North Vancouver. 7:30 PM.
Capilano University, Capilano Performing Arts Theatre.
2055 Purcell Way.
A reading from C’mon Papa, some anecdotes, and an onstage interview. Guest tomfoolery to be provided by George Bowering. Apologies to moms for launching a fatherhood memoir on Mother’s Day. Then again, may 9 is also the 50th anniversary of the FDA’s approval of the birth control pill. Ironies abound.

  1. Hi Ryan....I just read Cockeyed....I liked it...
    My brother has RP, he plays the bass guitar, his friends put electrical tape on the neck where the frets are so that he could find them....
    I love your writing !
