reading tonight / shameless plug
Tonight is my reading at the writer's festival. Here's the official blurb ...
19. Spike the Punch: A Late-Night Literary CabaretSo: you've got a stage full of writers and a bar at the back. What more do you need? Plus it's C's birthday. And since she can't drink, she's more than happy to see you tip one for her.
The fabulously irreverent poet Billeh Nickerson acts as master of ceremonies for this after-hours cabaret of out-there poetry, short fiction, and genre-busting nonfiction. Nova Scotia poet Jeanette Lynes, Doug Wright Award-winner Mariko Tamaki and Montreal author of Stripmalling, Jon Paul Fiorentino join local poet Jennifer Londry, flash-fiction blogger DJ Berger, and new novelist Andrew Binks for a night on the edge.
Holiday Inn Waterfront Friday, September 25 $10
6th Floor 11:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. Cash Bar

We were at the festival last night, for the It's a Mystery! event with Howard Engel and Louise Penny. There was a great crowd (mystery fans are so loyal!) and we were really impressed with how good the festival looks and how well it's going. I sometimes have my doubts about Kingston but every once in awhile it gets its legs.

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous. You continue to be: *The Bomb.*
