This Thursday (April 26), I'll be reading as part of the Main Street Literary Tour. I'm not sure how long this event has been going on, but last year the fabulous poet (and fantastic friend) Jennica Harper was part of it. I'm in Tour A and will be reading with Fiona Lam and Amanda Lamarche at 8 pm at Lark (on Main Street between Nirvana Restaurant and the Fox Cinema).
If you attend, please stop by and say hello. I think it should be a fun evening.

Last night's launch went very well. There was a substantial crowd and despite me being terrified, everyone said I read well and could not tell that I was nervous. (Phew!) The other two readers, Nancy Pagh and Sean Horlor, were fantastic. I felt so lucky to be sharing the stage with such talented poets. You should really pick up their books if you have the chance. Hosts Liz Bachinsky and Michael V Smith were very entertaining and generous. Together they currate the Robson Reading Series, the best reading series in the city. (And I'm not just saying that because I was a part of it. It really is the best.)
I'm thrilled to report that the bookstore sold out of my books which was a very pleasing thing to see. Such a large stack diminshed. In bed last night I counted up the books my friends bought and was happy to discover that other people, people who didn't feel any obligation to, bought my book. Hooray! (Please see the sidebar where you can buy your own copy.)

Again, I've been neglecting this blog. But now that my launch is literally hours away, I guess it's time to come back. If you're in Vancouver, please come by Robson Square for my launch tomorrow night at 7pm. I'll be reading with Nancy Pagh and Sean Horlor. It should be a good night.
