20 Nov Trampoline Hall
Last week, I finally attended that hallmark happening of literary Toronto, Trampoline Hall. (Whether it’s really a hallmark of anything but entertaining absurdity is open for debate.)
The format is thus: three lecturers, each speaking about a topic that is outside of their field. As in, something random that they didn’t know much about before committing to presenting at Trampoline Hall.
This edition featured talks on the mysteries of magic eye, the perils of trafficking large amounts of hashish in India, and political manipulation of the giant panda by the Chinese government.
The verdict: it was an entertaining evening, and definitely worth the $5 ticket.
