If the words "reading series" prompt thoughts of bongo drums, first-person rape fantasies or Ethan Hawke, it's probably time you stopped by Toronto's monthly Super Pen Pals Secret Reading Society
. The name of SPP's game is less literary posturing and more fun, with prize giveaways, audience participation, and sock-puppet MCs. For the low cost of pay what you can, expect to hear anything from video-game instructions to memoirs--or join the mailing list and sign up to read, yourself.
8:30 p.m. Oct. 6; Oasis, 294 College St. W., Toronto
