Acclaimed authors to read for charity

Two Canadian authors — one whose book chronicles her experience with breast cancer and the other, contemporary Vietnam and the new economy — are speaking at the Read for the Cure event at downtown’s Marriott Hotel tonight.

The author of The Beauty of Humanity Movement, Camilla Gibb writes about identity, family and community.

It’s been five years since her last book, Sweetness in the Belly, which was shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize.

The author of When My World Was Very Small, Ruth Rakoff said her book is about more than breast cancer — “It’s about life, crisis, falling down and moving forward.”
