Avant-Garde Bar at 135½ Besserer St., Ottawa. Michael’s biggest and most exciting book to date in 40 years of publishing — Bad Engine: New and Selected Poems, edited and introduced by Stuart Ross, hot off the Anvil Press! Several special guests from the Ottawa poetry community — including Sandra Ridley, Stephen Brockwell, Marilyn Irwin, rob mclennan, and Pearl Pirie — will be reading Michael’s poems before Michael himself takes the floor. The evening will be hosted by Michael’s long-time friend and collaborator Stuart Ross. Books will be for sale. Astonishing conversation will occur. There will be laughs and maybe even tears. And all in the beautifully eccentric coziness of the Avant Garde Bar, whose food and drink menu is an event in itself. (Fb Event)
