Single Onion #116 (Sept 18) - Event Details

Sigh. I am SO far behind with the blogging. On the other hand, I’m making some (slow) progress on the novel, so that’s not such a bad trade-off I suppose. That said, I’ve got an event coming up in Calgary in a few weeks, so I really should do my best to publicize it a bit, right? So here goes…

Calgarians! What are you up to on Thursday, September 18, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.? Feel like coming out to a reading at Shelf Life Books? I think you should.

For one thing, this will actually be my first event in Calgary that’s totally free to attend. So in that sense, it’s kind of the local launch for Boundary Problems, right? You know, for those who didn’t feel like springing for the Spur Festival Books & Brunch event back in April or a pass to When Words Collide in August. (Both of which were a blast, by the way. I would highly recommend both festivals to all comers. Entirely worth it. But it’s true, they weren’t free.)

For another, I’ll be reading as a part of the Single Onion series, which I hear is quite the local institution. And even better, I won’t be reading alone! Rather, I’ll be joining acclaimed poets Nikki Reimer (DOWNVERSE and [sic]) and Natalie Simpson (Thrum and accrete or crumble).

All around, it’s going to be a fun night, so come out and enjoy! I hear there’s also a “brief open-mic” to start, so perhaps you’d like to bring something to read yourself? The more the merrier, I say. And thanks so much to the Single Onion for inviting me. I consider it a privilege.

For more details, see the Single Onion upcoming events page, and if you happened to be so inclined, you could even invite your friends via the facebook event page. And that would be fun, wouldn’t it?

EDIT (Sept 6, 2014): Oh look! BeatRoute’s advertising the event! Sweet.
