Our next event is Festivity, on November 17. Our authors for this month include Pamela Rentz, Erin Rockfort, and Rebecca Campbell, plus a dramatic performance by Alyson Grauer.
Times and Location
Ephemera is held on the third Wednesday of every month. Readings begin at 7:00 p.m. ET and the event lasts approximately one hour. When in-person programming is possible, we hold events at the Glad Day Bookshop (499 Church St.). Watch our virtual events and browse past livestreams on YouTube.
Glad Day is an accessible, queer-friendly space. It has an accessible, gender-neutral washroom on the ground floor and additional washrooms in the basement, down a flight of stairs. The entrance does not have an automatic door, but volunteers are available to assist. Seating is reserved in the front row, with space for mobility devices. Music is played during breaks (noise levels can be moderate, depending on crowd size). Spotlights illuminate the stage area, while the remainder of the venue is lit by soft-to-moderate lighting. All readers use a microphone. Please note that Glad Day is not an alcohol-free space.
Our online events and live streams include subtitles.

The land on which ephemera is held while in person is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. This land is covered under Treaty 13 and is part of the Dish with One Spoon.
