Dionne Brand (no, not that one) is reading at UBC next week, along with Rita Wong.
I'm a big fan of her work, especially Land to Light On, and if I'm not completely sick of buses by then, I'll probably go - I've only taken a couple bus trips over the last few weeks, as the buses are usually running so late I end up walking my trips faster. Don't think I'll be walking to UBC, though. Anyway, here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, January 21, 2009
Time: Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Reading starts at 7:30 p.m.
Location: The Coach House at Green College, 6201 Cecil Green Park Road, UBC
More details on the reading and the reading series it's a part of here.
Oh, and there's a poetry reading and open mic at Tanglewood Books on Monday the 19th at 6 PM - I don't know much more than that, but I'm going to head out there and see what's what.
