Reading tomorrow at Performance Works, Granville Island. Also on the bill: Robert Arthur Alexie, Annabel Lyon, Ashok Mathur, Maile Meloy and Monique Proulx. 11:00AM-12:30PM.
Enjoyed reading with Marie-Claire Blais and Leon Rooke the other day. I'd read Marie-Claire's Mad Shadows in high school, a work she wrote when she was nineteen (the other Canadian Literature titles were Mitchell's Who Has Seen The Wind and Richler's The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz). Leon I'd seen while at university, when Shakespeare's Dog came out. I remember how he shook when he read.
