On November 23rd 2014, Jonathan Goldstein joined the Koffler Centre of the Arts in an onstage conversation with the AGO’s associate curator of Canadian art Georgiana Uhlyarik. The result was a thoughtful and hilarious mash-up of anecdotes and insights from Jonathan The Writer, Jonathan The Host of CBC’s Wiretap, and Jonathan The Man. Beginning with his book Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible! and ending with Woody Allen, anxiety, and Toronto’s cries for more Goldstein, this talk was a beautiful, comic back-and-forth between Goldstein, Georgiana, and the audience. Share with #KofflerArts and please enjoy! And thank to our audience members for taking photos and sharing on Twitter @KofflerArts / kofflerarts.org
