Adam Bunch - The Toronto Book of Love @ North York Central Library

The North York Historical Society is excited to have renowned author Adam Bunch present The Toronto Book of Love, that shares fascinating true tales of romance, marriage, and lust: From the scandalous love affairs of the city’s early settlers to the prime minister’s wife partying with rock stars on her anniversary; from First Nations marriage ceremonies to a pastor wearing a bulletproof vest to perform one of Canada’s first same-sex weddings. Home to adulterous movie stars, faithful rebels, and heartbroken spies, Toronto has been shaped by crushes, jealousies, and flirtations.

The Toronto Book of Love explores the evolution of the city from a remote colonial outpost to a major modern metropolis through the stories of those who have fallen in love among its ravines, church spires, and skyscrapers.
