THE OTHER SHELF. Ingrid Rojas Contreras: Fruit of the Drunken Tree


Mon Mar 04, 2019
6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
60 mins


Toronto Reference Library
Novella room - Bram and Bluma Appel Salon

Ingrid Rojas Contreras talks about Fruit of the Drunken Tree, a coming-of-age story of female empowerment, set in the Narco-world of Pablo Escobar. This novel is a powerful testament to the impossible choices women are often forced to make in the face of violence--and what can blossom in the middle of desperation.

Hear Rojas Contreras discuss her novel Fruit of the Drunken Tree with Jael Richardson.

This event is part of our new literary series, The Other Shelf, where we present exceptional writers in a smaller space. These events are held in the Novella Room in the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon.

Please don't print your tickets! We're trying to reduce paper waste for Salon events, so please don't bother printing your ticket. We'll either scan your ticket on your smartphone or quickly find your name on our tablets and check you in.

Arrive early, meet people. The talk starts at 6 pm, but doors open at 5 pm, so come early so you can chat with some of your fellow literature lovers, and make new friends. As with all Salon events, we'll have a full bar with a selection of beers, wine, and liquor, as well as sandwiches and snacks.

A note about tickets: As most Appel Salon events are free, it is our policy to overbook. In case of a full program, your ticket reservation may not guarantee admission. We recommend you arrive early.
