Please join me on Tuesday 20 December at 9 pm, downtown at The Second Cup (74 Dunlop St E), to hear some of my new poetry and fiction at the Society of the Spoken Word’s monthly literary reading. Drop the shopping bags, grab a warm beverage and a comfortable chair, and share in some storytelling and poetry.
I’ll be sharing work from a recently completed book of poetry, alphabets without vowels, and new poems about Barrie, hockey and travel from a work in-progress entitled Home and Away. In the spirit of the holidays, I’ll be reading an excerpt from my recently completed first novel, The Mango Stone, set during Christmas 1947 in East Africa.
An open mic is the hallmark of the Society of the Spoken Word, and I very much hope to hear many readers share their work. Please join in yourself, or come out and support the diversity of Barrie’s burgeoning literary scene.
