In Conversation With Shawn Micallef: Windsor & 'The Trouble With Brunch' says
Shawn Micallef's The Trouble With Brunch begins with the following dedication:

'To Windsor, Ontario,
a good place to come from.'

In the book that had people all over the world talking about brunch, author and Windsorite Shawn Micallef explores how Windsor shaped his idea of class, work, and leisure, working as a lens through which he continues to understand Toronto and other cities. In this casual, salon-style conversation at Rino's Kitchen, Shawn will discuss the role Windsor played in writing his book, and how Windsor's social and labour history sets an example for living and societal values that other cities can learn from.

Joining Shawn will be City Councillor Rino Bortolin and CBC Radio's Jonathan Pinto, who will moderate. All are welcome to join in the discussion!
