Oliver Jeffers: In Conversation with Piya Chattopadhyay

The only Canadian event!

Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street


For the only Canadian stop on his global tour, internationally-bestselling author and artist Oliver Jeffers joins TPL to discuss his first picture book created specifically with a wider audience in mind, offering a powerful, thoughtful, and bold comment on humanity and its future.

Begin Again starts at the dawn of humankind following people on their journey from then until now, and then offers readers a challenge: where do we go from here? How can we think about the future of the human race more than our individual lives? How can we save ourselves? How can we change our story?

Oliver Jeffers speaks with Piya Chattopadhyay, host of CBC's Sunday Magazine on CBC Listen and CBC Radio, about Begin Again, an insightful, moving, and powerful exploration of the state of the world today illustrated in his instantly recognizable style.

Q&A and book signing to follow. Begin Again will be available for purchase.

Ticket registration for this event is required: Free tickets are available to book via Eventbrite.
