Read yesterday at the Fraser-Hickson library in N.D.G. Met Cory there a bit before the event started and I sat with her as she ate something at the restaurant with the ominous name, B&M. It was a nice turnout at the reading, and a terrific spread at the wine and cheese beforehand. Sold some books, including one to a former Sir George Williams librarian who asked me to write a verse from one of my poems in the front of the book so that he could donate it to the University of Calgary Library's special collections, the library he donated his entire CanPo collection to several years ago. Cory, Gayle, Bina and Heidi Barkun, the artist, were in attendance, and Steve Luxton introduced me. Thanks to Steve and Giuliana, and to everyone for coming.
