No Comments  |  Leave a comment

Check out the Active Fiction installation before it ends this Sunday, May 18!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to walk through your favourite novel? Close to 40 folks showed up during our launch in early May to find out! And guess what… the stories are still up this week in case you missed them (or stayed out of the rain).

Check out the choose your own adventure walking tour that CBC and other media’s been talking about lately.

Here’s all you need to check out the (self-guided) walking tour:

Go to the bulletin board on east 24th, between Main st & Ontario st and find the first Active Fiction chapter there. You’ll find all the instructions on where to find the rest of the story there as well. Then it’s up to you to wander the neighborhood and find the next chapters hidden in the area (but not hidden too secretly).
