awake but dreaming – Book Launch Party Pics

I was invited to the launch of Maya Chendke’s new book, Awake but Dreaming, at the Shangri-La in Toronto. Awake but Dreaming explores the pitfalls of fame and the cult of celebrity. The main characters hail from Toronto and Maya made sure to include as many local favourites as she could, and even had these Toronto gems show off their goods her launch. Boutiques, bakeries and custom made cocktails all told the story of Awake but Dreaming from Maya’s and her characters’ perspective. I just started reading the book, and so far I’m loving it. It’s a fun, easy read that has already taken me on a worldwide adventure and reminded me of how great it is back home. Check out the photo gallery and slideshow below, and don’t forget to check out Maya’s new book.
