For those of you living in Canada, or thinking about a visit, Desis Di Nardo sends this invitation. It sounds like a great gathering:
I want to let you know about a poetry event I will be co-hosting with Canada’s Poet Laureate – Pierre DesRuisseaux on Sunday, November 8, 2009 at 7 p.m. There will be readings by Pierre DesRuisseaux, Max Layton, Armand Garnet Ruffo, and Toronto’s new Poet Laureate – Dionne Brand. In addition, the night will feature live jazz, an art exhibit, and the winners of a high school poetry contest. Details can be found below.
