I am extremely pleased to announce that Imagining Toronto will be published by Mansfield Press. Assuming the universe unfolds as it should, the book is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2008.
Mansfield Press is a Toronto-based publisher of poetry, literary fiction, and books about city culture. Some of Mansfield’s most notable titles include Toronto Poet Laureate Pier Giorgio Di Cicco’s Municipal Mind: Manifestos for the Creative City (2007), College Street — Little Italy: Toronto’s Renaissance Strip (2006), and Red Silk: An Anthology of Women South Asian Poets (2004; edited by Rishma Dunlop and Priscila Uppal).
I am very grateful to publisher Denis De Klerck for taking on this project, which I hope will be a credit to Mansfield’s City Building Books imprint.
And now, to clear my schedule and lay in a supply of Bailey’s to steady me through a winter of writing. I’ll still be teaching at York one day a week, but the bulk of my time and energy will be dedicated to completing the book. Afternoon invitations to escape for hot chocolate, however, will be welcomed warmly.
