Local author Humberto da Silva will hold a launch party for his book Compassion Fatigue tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 8) in the Beach.
The party is set for Castro’s Lounge, 2116 Queen St. E., at 9 p.m.
A southwest Scarborough resident, da Silva’s work has been published in Our Times, THIS Magazine, OnSpec and Rampike.

On his website, da Silva writes: “Twenty years travelling. Twenty years in the Labour Movement. A quarter century being a father. Half a century and growing up into myself. Now is the time to write…”
