Like above/ground and all the poetry plentitude rob mclennan does? Like my poetry? Now you can support both in one swoop for $30. One package gone, 6 more to go…
The above/ground 30th anniversary fundraiser to keep the poetry coming is on for 2 more weeks.
There are many bundles, Hugh Thomas, Chicago poets, Toronto poets, visual poets, “a heartfelt support package” where you give $20 but don’t need to find more room to put anything, and loads more.
I guess since Facebook isn’t for everyone’s taste and it isn’t on my server, I’ll share a few photos from the Ottawa small press fair here as well.
I didn’t go around systematically photographing each person and booth this time, to the relief of at least a couple exhibitors.
Michael e. Casteels was there, and Shreeking Violet, above/ground, Grunge Papers and a bunch more new and regulars.
Next time: November, Jack Purcell. I hit my limit of $120 spent and took in a good amount too.
The 4th annual author’s day went off pretty nicely. I sold several chapbooks, an autoharp and chatted with a couple people about the Guatemala Stove Project.
We all checked out each other’s wares. I didn’t get a photo of everyone through. Who was there? Ruth Tabacnik with Beads of Awareness which raises money for artist partners in Uganda and for solar lights there. A pretty good sized crew from the Gatineau Valley Historical Society with their magazines, their books on history and canoe routes. Stephanie Boyer was there with her French and (soon to be English and Korean) children’s books. Workshop leader, poet and novelist Catherine Joyce was tabling as well.
I’m having a little trouble with my gallery images here in preview vs. what actually displays.
Below should be Brian Doyle and Marieke.
Photo below is with Nicole Caputo closing.
