If you’ve yet to attend the lecture series known as Trampoline Hall, this Monday, September 13 is your chance, scholarly ones. Not swayed? This isn’t one of those boring uni lectures you’re forced to attend for credit; it’s a whole other kind of literary event – a fantastic, boozy literary event. We wish our post-secondary education was full of these. 

Created by author Sheila Heti, Trampoline Hall assembles once a month for a quirky evening of spoken word courtesy of interesting people. This month’s edition takes place at the Garrison (1197 Dundas St. W.) is curated by Margaux Williamson and features Shelagh FitzGerald on world conflict as understood through a trip to the cottage, Cara Eastcott on malaria, self-reflection and the movie Blow, and Alex Tigchelaar on anger management and altruistic dreams. 

Doors open at 7:40 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 sharp. Tickets are $6, available at Soundscapes (572 College St.).
