Toronto: Two Typoscrumptious Happenings Upcoming

Andrew Steeves of Gaspereau Press recently wrote on his blog:
...I'll be participating in a couple of events at the University of Toronto and Massey College at the end of the month, where I’ll be talking about printing, the state of literary publishing and the art of fine typography. Wherever I start, I’ll most likely end up talking about ecology, economics and civics too, putting the issues facing ‘the book’ into some sort of historical context. I’m into that kind of thing.

The events are open to the public, and I’d love to meet some of our Toronto readers and authors. If you live in that neck of the woods and are interested in the way we like to roll at Gaspereau Press, please come out to one or both of these events and make sure you take a minute to say hello.
Get the Lead Out, a symposium of letterpress printers includes Stan Bevington, Briam Maloney, Will Rueter, and Andrew Steeves. The event takes place at Massey College Wednesday, March 28, 2012 3pm - 4:30pm.

The following day, the Ecology of the Book, an illustrated talk by Andrew Steeves takes place at the Jackman Humanities Building on March 29, 2012 1pm.

The events are sponsored by the Dean's Student Initiative Fund in the Faculty of the Arts and Science at the University of Toronto and by Massey College.
