Book Event- Sylvia Tyson

If you are in the Toronto area today and are interested in meeting Sylvia Tyson, (of Ian and Sylvia fame), she will be launching her new novel Joyner's Dream tonight, Tuesday April 5th. The event is open to the public and will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Dora Keogh, 141 Danforth Avenue (Danforth Avenue & Broadview). "We always knew Sylvia Tyson was a wonderful storyteller in song. Turns out that's true for the page, too. Joyner's Dream is a square-dance of family history. The partners change, but music courses through it all like blood. I was swept away by Sylvia's sweeping saga. This is one good read!" – Shelagh Rogers, O.C., host of CBC Radio’s “The Next Chapter”

"What a page-turning family saga, this tale of 'a long line of thieves and cheats, liars and con artists and even a murderer.' Sylvia Tyson's storytelling is absolutely and shrewdly captivating."- Wayson Choy, author of The Jade Peony and All That Matters

"As one half of the legendary '60's folk duo Ian & Sylvia, Sylvia Tyson was (and continues to be) a talented songwriter. With her fiction debut, Joyner's Dream, she proves to be a masterful storyteller as well... Brilliantly employing a vast range of voices, Joyner's Dream is a hugely satisfying, lyrical read."- Chatelaine
