Taste of Iceland in Toronto: The Write Stuff
Celebrate Iceland's rich storytelling tradition with a discussion led by Iceland’s First Lady Eliza Reid at the Portland Room of The Spoke Club on November 9. In addition to being first lady, Reid is also a Reykjavik-based writer and editor who co-founded the Iceland Writers Retreat. Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for creative minds, and Reid will focus her talk on what makes Iceland so unique and inspirational - both as a home and as a travel destination - for lovers of the written word. Reid will also be joined by Toronto-based, award-winning author, journalist and teacher, Andrew Westoll. During the free event, enjoy a selection of tasty hors d'oeuvres and Icelandic cocktails. Following the discussion, guests will get the chance to browse a selection of Icelandic literature for purchase on-site, courtesy of Ben McNally Books.
