It's the tenth anniversary of Telling Tales Out of School, and this year we're holding it in a brand new space! We hope you can join us on Monday, June 3, at Daniels Spectrum, the wonderful new arts centre in Regent Park.
The evening will feature an array of award-winning authors, actors, musicians and student performers, including:
Juno award-winning band Sloan
Comedian Caroline Rhea
Award-winning author Camilla Gibb
Governor General's Award winning author David Bezmozgis
From CBC's Mr. D, Naomi Snieckus
Juno award-winner Melanie Doane with Toronto students on ukulele

All proceeds help People for Education protect the arts, ESL, libraries, and special education in Ontario public schools.
Telling Tales Out of School, People for Education's Annual Gala Benefit is both a celebration of public education and a fundraiser for People for Education. Over the years, Telling Tales has attracted many of Toronto's political, community, and business leaders as audience members, as well as an amazing roster of Canadian authors, actors and musicians.
Every dollar raised at Telling Tales Out of School helps People for Education conduct and publicize its research, provide support to parents and school communities, and work to support all aspects of a strong education system including things like the arts in schools, and special education and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.
