Henderson Brewing Co and House of Anansi Press are back with another big season of Pint Size Conversations! 

Join us on the third Wednesday of each month as we sit down with a different author to chat about books, beer, Toronto, and absolutely anything else that comes up along the way too! Afterwards, we'll open up the floor for an audience Q & A, followed by book signing and meet and greet!

November's selection is SPIN by Clive Veroni! In the early twentieth century, political operatives did their work in the backroom, a shady place of secret deals and dark arts. Today, they have moved from the dim light of the backroom to the bright lights of the war room, the central command for political campaigns. 

Aided by masses of data, sophisticated computer modelling, and smart manipulation of social media, political strategists are reshaping the way voters think. And act. Clive Veroni analyzes the inner workings of campaign organizations to show how they build and motivate teams, and how they approach strategic and future planning. And those strategies being used to influence our choices at the ballot box will soon be used to influence our choices in the grocery store.

Spin focuses on the well-known characters from the worlds of politics and marketing to reveal how all of us will be affected by the surprising new ways in which companies and politicians will try to persuade us to vote for their brands.

>>> Each month, House of Anansi Press hosts a Pop Up Shop in the brewery, selling their newest releases alongside classic titles. All night, there's a Book & Beer Special - buy any book from the pop up, and you'll get a complimentary pint of beer at no additional charge! 

This is a free event! All are welcome!
