City in Flames: Book Signing

Thursday, September 21, 2023

Upstart & Crow Studio


We’re thrilled to host Toronto author Tomas Hachard for an author meet and greet and book signing. His debut novel, City in Flames, is out now by the very great publisher, Flying Books.

At once evocative and propulsive, City in Flames is a love story about two isolated people with a deep yet fragile bond trying to find their way to each other while political disorder engulfs the world around them. Described as Exit West meets Normal People, the novel is a moving dystopian romance eerily in tune with our times. Come pick up a copy, get it signed, and toast the writer of this wonderful debut!

“Tomas Hachard’s superb debut novel . . . [is] supple in its construction . . . a novel as thought-provoking as it is emotionally moving.” —Brian Bethune, Toronto Star
