Canadian Writers in Person & more

Time for my monthly blog ...

I'll be reading tomorrow night (Oct. 27) for the Canadian Writers in Person series at York University. 7:00 pm at Stedman Lecture Hall D. It'll be a full reading with Q&A after.

The Ottawa International Writers Festival was a blast. They treat their authors exceptionally well and it was great to hang out with the Ottawa folks again. Speaking of those people, I missed seeing jwcurry, but he promises to be at the Toronto Small Press Fair this weekend (Oct. 29 at Trinity-St. Paul's 427 Bloor St. W. 11am-5pm).

Great to drink with rob mclennan as well; check out his blogspot for a report on the Festival, plus a shout-out to my essay on Raymond Souster from The Canadian Modernists Meet.

Also met photographer John W. MacDonald in Ottawa, who took some very cool b&w photos which can be seen here.

After tomorrow, the next reading will be at Hamilton's GritLit on Sunday Nov. 6th. Details in next post.
