We are pleased to announce that the inaugural edition of our new reading series, the Tungsten Arts & Letters Society Outdoor Word & Music Adventure (You may pronounce it TA&LSOW&MA for short), will be held on WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 6, 2006 at 6:30pm at the foot of the Baldwin Steps, just down the hill from historic Casa Loma.

In keeping with the medieval-castle-style surroundings, the theme for the evening's proceedings will be "Fairy Tales."

There will be readings sprinkled with pixie dust by Joel McConvey and Kathryn Borel, both of whom are very compelling performers.

When the readings have been read, our house band -- the name is a closely guarded secret but we are fairly certain the members include Matt Collins, Jonny Dovercourt, Jeff Wright, Sasha Chapin and Laura Barret -- will play a few numbers.

Tungsten Arts & Letters Society Socialite-in-Chief Edward Keenan will master the ceremonies. His mother, Mrs. Keenan (or Grandma Donna, if you feel you must), will be serving complimentary homemade refreshments. Colum Michael Keenan, the TA&LS Baby-in-Residence, will be providing the cuteness.

The TA&LSOW&MA will take place rain or shine. There will be no PA system. There will be no booze. There will be no washrooms. That, dear friends, is the adventure.

Find the steps on the north side of the intersection of Davenport and Spadina Road. The easiest way to get there is to walk directly north from Dupont Subway. We sincerely hope to see you there.
