Myself, Renee Saklikar and Rajnish Dhawan will be reading at the Universtiy of the Fraser Valley this Thursday. The details:
Canadian Writers Series at UFV
Thursday, March 13th, 12:30 - 2:00 PM
University of the Fraser Valley Bookstore, Abbostford Campus
33844 King Road, Abbotsford
Featuring: Renee Saklikar, Rajnish Dhawan and me!
It's been a long time since I last read more than a poem or two in the Lower Mainland, so I'm pretty excited to try out some new stuff. And I'm looking forward to reading with both Renee and Rajnish - I'm completely prepared for Renee to, as usual, steal the show.
This event is an extension of UFV's writer-in-residency program, and is organized by current WiR and friend of silaron, Daniela Elza (Thanks, Daniela!), whose reward for organizing the readings is to have a giant photo of herself featured on all the posters. Not bad, eh?
Will Daniela make a cameo appearance during the reading? Will Renee and I get lost trying to find UFV for the first time? Will anyone come to a poetry reading in Abbotsford at 12:30 on a Thursday? You'll have to come to find out!
p.s. Speaking of Renee, she's got a great new interview with Jordan Abel and Daniel Zomparelli up now at Lemonhound. Check it out!
