Reading and Q&A, in partnership with Word Vancouver

While living at Historic Joy Kogawa House since July 2016 Toronto journalist and author Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall has articulate the social history of the effects of alcohol on our selves, our psyches, and our societies; the non-fiction work completed is part memoir. Reading and discussion will offers an opportunity to join a conversation about society’s relationship with alcohol.

Until recently Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall was the proprietor of The Lowdown – a subterranean watering hole in Toronto’s Kensington Market – the ideal place to finish research on his new book to be published by Harper Collins in 2017.
