We’d like to start off 2013 by doing something a bit different. Yes we will still have construction updates, amusing and hopefully, informative posts about Toronto and it’s history. But our resolution was to inject a little more…Culture into this blog.
As you’re probably aware, we at Context are avid readers – not just the classics though, we’re pretty up to date on some current books as well!

October is banned book week, this is where libraries and schools celebrate these great works of literature that have often been the subject of controversy, despite their status as literary classics.
