A man called Cobra

Posted by Hannah / February 26, 2007

20070226_haiku.jpg We've known for a while now that cell phones really have very little to do with talking. They're actually an art medium. If Nokias can be turned into birds, why not compose haikus with the text message function?

At the inaugural Non-Fiction Reading Night, Cameron Esler will delve into the mysterious world of text-message haikus. Jeremy Wexler (Maisonneuve, DNTO and Tapestry) will speak on the rituals of hair grooming, and Tally Abecassis will read about scheming, her month and a man they call Cobra. Sheryl Fragin talks about relationships and Kelly Drukker spins tales of her recent travels (hey she just won second prize in poetry at the CBC Literary Awards!)

Where: BOA, 5301 St-Laurent corner Maguire
When: Tuesday, Feb 27th, 9pm

I went to the second half of this on my way home from a final shinny game on an outdoor rink (ice along boards now treacherous from daytime sun damage, ice generally sub-par), and it was great. The two readings I watched were polar opposites: one a rather bleak, though occasionally witty, account of a couple dealing with MS, and the other a goofy discussion of face-shaving methods for observant Jews. Good stuff. I'll go to the next one.
