Heiti, the playwright-in-residence at the Sudbury Theatre Centre, will read from his debut novel, "The City Still Breathing". It's a crime book about a dead body that is found on the side of Highway 17 outside Sudbury.
Christakos will read from her ninth collection, "Multitudes". It's a rousing, witty foray into a timely frontier of public spaces, poetic forms, private longings and virtual relocations.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by an open mic.
A similar event featuring Heiti and Christakos is being hosted by Laurentian in Barrie — where the university has a satellite campus — starting at 7 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Creative Space at 12 Dunlop Street East.
