I will be reading at the St. Thomas Poetry Series next month, organized by David Kent, and I am very excited about the opportunity to do so. I first happened across the St. Thomas Poetry Series in 1996, when my English professor at the University of Toronto, John Reibetanz, launched a book in the series. That publication, Near Finisterre, is still one of my favourite books, for both the poetry and the wonderfully designed and printed book itself, and I am very pleased that John will also be reading at the event next month. I have attended book launches and readings at St. Thomas’s Church whenever possible over the years, and have enjoyed reading all of the publications that I have collected from the poetry series, especially Richard Greene’s Crossing the Straights and Leif Vaage’s Schooled in Salt. Please join me on November 14th at this wonderful poetry series. Cheers.
