Tomorrow morning I'll be on the train to Toronto. The occasion is
Fri. Nov. 4 3:30pm "Reading in Two Voices" Brian Campbell + Francisco Santos @ Festival de la Palabra y de la Imagen / Festival of Images and Words, York University, Glendon Campus, York Hall 3rd Floor, Toronto
although besides sharing stage & conversation with Francisco, I will also be staying with my mother, spending some time in the hospital with what's left of my ailing father, whose Alzheimer's has become quite advanced, and taking a side trip to Guelph, Ontario to crash at Allen Sutterfield's and take part in his reading series there --
Sat. Nov. 5 1-5pm: Woolwich Arms, Guelph, OntarioWill be back Lundi.
Mardi, by the way, I'll be reading at the Arts Cafe here in Montreal. That's what that poster up above is about... Cute, eh? So... what is blank poetry anyways??.......
Ciao, sundry all. À la prochaine…
Being a Montrealer interested in ars poetica, you would think that I might be familiar with this venue. (Shows how insular a life I lead.)Thanks for the info and good luck with your reading.
Random question: are you a basketball fan?
If so, a bunch of us are 'playing' in a fantasy basketball league (Peter Pereira, Steven Schroder, David Vincenti, Pamela Johnson Parker & Son, and myself, so far), and we need more participants! You should join up. It's free. Swing on over to my blog for more info, if you're interested.
Stevie Nash is from Canadia....
What a mixed trip..an exciting reading and the reminder of the toll illness can take with our parents. Thinking of you and hope you'll give us a full report when you return.
C'est Lundi . . .
Hope things went well—I'm sure you added to the ranks of those now awaiting the release.
