The Box (Toronto)

Gave a short reading at The Box art series in Toronto, organized by Louise Bak (pictured below), author of two excellent books, Ginko Kitchen and Tulpa . The event (in the back room of the Rivoli) was great--terrific crowd and some amazing performances and films, by Karen Hines, David Hyde, Linda Griffiths, Dave McGimpsey, Izabella Pruska, and Michael Turner, who chopped wood to Lenny Bruce (you had to be there). The audience was awesome, and included my cousin Heather (Camlot) and her husband, Marc, plus other ex-Montrealers Matias M., Syd P. and David B, and a former graduate student of mine, Angela Sz. I'm so grateful to all of them for coming. And thanks, Louise, for inviting me.
