Book Launch--Opium Eater: The New Confessions

Toronto, Ontario
June 9, 2016

Caversham Booksellers, 98 Harbord

Toronto medical and social justice writer Carlyn Zwarenstein launches Opium Eater: The New Confessions (Nonvella, 2016) with a free event at Caversham Booksellers, North America's only mental health-focused bookstore. Opium Eater is a darkly comic look at the experience of pain, the healthcare and mental health care systems, and prescription opioid medication--of which North Americans are the world's most prolific and compulsive users. Published by Nonvella, a new, independent publisher of long form non-fiction from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.

The event is free but there is limited space; your rsvp is also a gauge for the bookstore's caterer.
