Headliner(s): Tamai Kobayashi
Featured Titles: Prairie Ostrich
7:00 pm at Another Story Book Shop (315 Roncesvalles Avenue), Toronto, ON

Join us to celebrate the launch of Prairie Ostrich by Tamai Kobayashi on March 27 at 7 p.m. at Another Story Book Shop.

Prairie Ostrich is a warm and compelling debut novel and in it, Koyabashi — a writer and videographer who was born in Japan and grew up in Canada — introduces a fresh perspective to Canadian literature. She blends physical, cultural, and sexual isolation into an account of one small girl’s attempt to find her place against schoolyard battles and the mysteries of the adult world.

This is a free event and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.
