Imagine a novel set in Toronto during an election campaign for the next mayor.
Imagine that one of the candidates is a big man named "Hap Charlton".
Imagine "Hap" is a part-time volunteer coach at a suburban high school who promised to cut bureaucratic waste at city hall and eradicate graffiti from the city streets and who insists on driving his own car.
DOES IT RING A BELL? Fact or Fiction? Or both?
Find out for sure on December 5, when Toronto author and criminal lawyer (and francophile) Robert Rotenberg gives us a fun reading from his incredibly timely new book, STRANGLEHOLD.
Robert Rotenberg lecture will take place from 6:30 to 7:15pm followed by our usual ApéroChic meet and greet.
Rotenberg, who was once an editor of "Passion, The English-Speaking Magazine of Paris," has written four international best selling novels, all set in Toronto. He's also a criminal lawyer with inside knowledge of the city, and so as you can imagine, he has some stories to tell.
Take a look at this recent article about him in the Metro:http://bit.ly/1flPfim
