Book Lover’s Ball
Toronto’s distinguished black-tie affair brought the city’s brightest literary brains to the Fairmont Royal York Hotel to celebrate the 8th annual Book Lover’s Ball. The February event featured 60 celebrated authors and raised more than half-a-million dollars for the Toronto Public Library Foundation. “Once you get the narrative flow down, it then begins to move,” CTV news legend Lloyd Robertson told Dolce of the writing process that led to his memoir The Kind of Life It’s Been. Actress Meg Tilly of Bomb Girls revealed she and her sisters “were veracious readers. That’s how I figured out who I was and what was right and what was wrong.” The shared sentiments of impassioned book lovers filled the air.
