I don't usually do post-reading reports, but just wanted to say that the reading at 32 Books in North Van on Tuesday night was very enjoyable - much better than most! Good inspiration for my own reading tomorrow night (7:00 - 9:00 PM, Blenz Coffee Shop, Hastings and Richards)...
Every writer brought out some great work, including Weekly World News Lobsters from Shannon Stewart (no, not the former Blue Jays left fielder, sadly) and musical accompaniment for Kate Braid's reading from her Glenn Gould Poems.
If you missed out and would like to see Kate Braid's part (I recommend it), she's reading again tonight at UBC Downtown:
Robson Reading Series
Thursday, April 9th, 7:00 PM
UBC Robson Square Bookstore/Library
800 Robson Street, Vancouver
Thanks to 32 Books and David Zieroth (who's launching his new collection, The Fly in Autumn, at 32 Books in early May) for putting it together. Looking forward to many more readings to come!
Oh, and while I'm posting: Gaspereau Press is putting a poem up on their blog every day throughout April. Check it out here.
