City Lit: Roundup

Posted by Kim / March 17, 2008

20080211_book1.jpgMy apologies for missing the roundup last week, but things are back on track now! Oh, and March 21st is World Poetry Day, so celebrate it in style!

Here's some events to bookmark this week (March 17th – March 23rd):

Tonight (March 17th) is the WithWords Press book launch for Jason Camlot’s The Fruit Man and Other Poems and Gillian Sze’s A Tender Invention. These two are great Montreal talents, so poetry lovers, check this out. At Kafein (1429a Bishop), readings start at 7pm sharp.

On Wednesday, March 19th, playwright and best-selling novelist Trevor Ferguson will be speaking and signing books between 5 & 7 PM at Théâtre La Chapelle. Contact for reservations to see the play after!

For all the West Island folk, on Thursday, March 20th, W.I.R.E. (West Island Readers Electric) is hosting an evening of poetry by West Island writers at Cafe Aurora( 552 Beaconsfield Blvd), 7pm, with readings by Jennifer Boire, Mark Abley, Paris Sea, Julie Mahfood, Lesley Pasquin and special guest, Ian Ferrier.

Friday, March 21st sees another book launch – the Soliloquies Anthology Launch. Featuring Catherine Kidd and a variety of writers from the anthology, as well as the music styling of Tim Moxam. At Centre St. Ambroise (5080 St. Ambroise), 7pm.

Also on Friday – Noches de Poesia combines itself with fresh pasta and pastries at the Jean-Talon Market. Baked goods and poetry under the theme “La paix par le dialogue” - does it get any better? You do have to reserve tickets for this event, but I think it’s worth it. Arrive at 5:30pm to eat, 6:30, the readings start. With French and English writers, including Marie Cholette, Ilona Martonfi, Ehab Lotayef, Angel Mota and Carmine Starnino

Well, actually it's prttey good. I got an 80. Of course most of the time it's too freaking hot around here to walk anywhere, so I only ever get to shops 5 minutes before they close. lolAlexandra, it's good to see you around too.
