Thurs, Aug 23, 7:30pm.
Ottawa Art Gallery (at ArtsCourt).
Readings from new chapbooks by
Marcus McCann, Amanda Earl, Bill Hawkins.
Hosted by rob mclennan.
A Factory Reading Series event
celebrating above/ground press's 14th anniversary.

Can't make the reading? You can purchase the new above/ground press chapbooks (my Heteroskeptical, Amanda Earl's Eleanor and Bill Hawkins' the black prince of bank street) by mail. Or better yet, why not pick up a yearround subscription for just $40?

I will be sure to thank rob tomorrow. I'm so excited the delinquent poems in Heteroskeptical found a home. And I also want to thank Emily Falvey of the Ottawa Art Gallery for giving the chapbook's launch a home. And thanks to everyone who's helped promote the little bugger: Mitchell Caplan at CHUO's Click Here and Susan Johnston at CKCU's Friday Special Blend. Also to Steve from Dusty Owl for putting together the Pride reading handbill. It looks spiffy. And thanks to host James Moran, Sky Gilbert and co-opener Mackenzie MacBride for a ripping time last week. And it's great to see listing shout-outs in the Ottawa Citizen and a article in... how did that get there?... Capital Xtra. And Amanda won't let you forget about the reading on her blog. And there's a little bit in... no really, how did that get there?... the Ottawa Poetry Newsletter. And of course on rob's blog, which brings us full circle.
