Instead of retweeting every kind mention of it, I’ll instead post some links here regarding a review I wrote of last week’s Grey Borders Reading Series event featuring Pearl Pirie, Donato Mancini, Beatriz Hausner, Steve Zultanski, and the unforgettable bill bissett. You can relive it / pretend you were there by visiting Ottawa Poetry Newsletter, or by following links set up by Chaudiere Books and GBRS’ Facebook page.
I’ve included some more photos from the evening below but if you’re not into fuzzily focused amateurism, check out Pirie’s shots on her poetry journal. There's also a fine write-up on the reading courtesy of Open Book Ontario.
