Bull Head Tour Kicks Into Gear

Well Calgary & Fernie, that was a blast. Thanks for the great kick off to the November BULL HEAD tour this past weekend.

On Friday night in Calgary, I was honoured to read with Marcello Di Cintio and Naomi Lewis, both excellent writers and entertaining readers. Special thanks to Pages Books on Kensington and their attentive staff for hosting a fantastic event that featured an enthusiastic over-capacity crowd.

The next night, I read with the farmer-philosopher-weight lifter poet Charles Noble, at Fernie's funky Clawhammer Letterpress Gallery. The evening featured a great crowd, great questions by the audience, great moderating by Angie Abdou. Special thanks to Randal Macnair and Clawhammer Press and the rest of the Fernie community for making this a lively evening. A few other writers showed up as well: Sioux Browning, Sid Marty and of course the lovely Nancy Lee. It was a formidable event, one I was honoured to be a part of, having returned to town after too long of an absence.
