“Grownups read things they wrote as kids”

The wonderful event “Grownups read things they wrote as kids” started as a fun storytelling event and has morphed into a very successful and hilarious CBC radio show. The stage events are returning, and Dan Misener, the producer, has just let me know they’re still looking for contributors to the Toronto one on Monday November 24. All you need is a voice and something interesting, funny or true you wrote when you were younger.

Here’s the information from Dan. If you’re in the area – go on, sign up, I dare you!

We’re still looking for a few more readers, and the signup link is here:
