Jailbreaks Launch in Toronto
Attention all Toronto-area Biblioasis-o-philes. We'll be launching, finally, Zach Wells' fine anthology Jailbreaks: 99 Canadian Sonnets Wednesday, June 11th at 8 pm at the I.V. Lounge in Toronto (326 Dundas St. W). All of this due to the fine work of Alex Boyd and Colin Carberry. My thanks go out to both.
Confirmed readers are as follows, though I'm still hoping to guilt at least a few more into coming out (you know who you are: Mike Barnes, David Hickey (I'll drive you to and from, same night, Redbulling it late back at 75 k/hr in my less-than-trusty minivan along the 401), Ken Babstock (who, in case you didn't know, is a proud dad now (& he seems to think that is reason enough not to come to this shindig. Imagine.))
Walid Bitar, Colin Carberry, Evie Christie, Eric Cole, Pino Coluccio, E.A. Lacey (read by Fraser Sutherland), Gwendolyn MacEwen (read by Meaghan Strimas), David W. McFadden, Shane Neilson, Stuart Ross, Joshua Trotter, & Zachariah Wells.
Zach is flying in for this event from Vancouver, so come on out and congratulate him on a hell of a fine job with Jailbreaks.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
