ABOUT THE EVENT
In its eighth year, The Book Lover's Ball will literally be Toronto's best event of the year! But more importantly, proceeds will enhance the work of one of Toronto's most important asset: Toronto's Library, the busiest urban public library system in the world.
We're so excited to welcome back Tracy Moore and Melanie Ng from CityTV as our hosts for the evening.
Tracy Moore is the host of Canada’s longest running lifestyle show Cityline. From Monday to Friday on Citytv Tracy can be seen across the country trying DIY projects, learning new recipes and sizing up the latest fashions. Aside from being an energetic mom to two young children, she is known for her laid back style, easy laugh and love of fashion, fitness and all things shoe-related.
Melanie Ng: Red Carpet Host
As a field reporter for CityNews, Melanie Ng hits the streets to bring viewers the latest in news and events from across Toronto and the GTA.
Working with the media on a daily basis in her previous career in the fast paced world of PR, Melanie knew her true calling was in broadcasting and enrolled in the postgraduate Broadcast Journalism program at Seneca College at York University. Her next challenge took her to a new level…hundreds of feet up high in a helicopter! As a reporter at the Canadian Traffic Network, Melanie provided breaking news and traffic reports for CHCH News, Global News and local radio stations. Melanie moved to anchoring the weekend news at CHCH before finding a home as a field reporter here at Citytv in October 2010.
Melanie Ng grew up in Oakville and graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a double honours degree in Communication Studies and English, and a minor in History. Melanie went on to complete a postgraduate certificate in Public Relations from Humber College, graduating with honours.
