"Oh Not So Great" Launch Photos

The Vancouver launch of "Oh Not So Great": Poems from the Depression Project happened last Saturday, and was a great success. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to all the people who hosted, introduced, presented, read and volunteered at the event. And special thanks to Kat Louman-Gardiner for taking these photos!

I've never felt so humbled to be part of such a wide-ranging and vibrant community (of writers and readers, of thinkers and doers).

The crowd, effervescent with anticipation.
Fiona Tinwei Lam opens the evening.
Dr. Alan Bates, President of the BC Psychiatric Association, speaks about depression.
You can read his blurb on the book here.
Dr. Patricia Gabriel introduces the project (and I think,
at this moment, endures some heckling from the wings).
Dr. Josephine Lee speaks about the research project's methodology.
I mime adjusting a tie. Hilarity ensues.
Dr. Carol-Ann Courneya talks about the Heartfelt Images program.
Lucas' second book launch. He's no more certain about it than
the first (though Mom does her best to convince him).

Though I don't currently have any planned, I hope to do more readings from the book in the future - keep an eye on the Readings page of my website for future events.

If you're interested in the book, you can pick up a copy from the Leaf Press website, or through your local bookstore.
