it's almost as bad as "cafe deux soleils" and "cafe du soleil" on the same street

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
Cost: Free

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.

(ok, let's try this again:-))

Thanks for coming, Rob.
Great space. Good company. And a measure of musical chairs, and laughter. Hope James hosts more readings there.
