Friday at the Festival

Friday is a big day here are Fog Lit. First up at 2:00 pm is Novel Tea. This perennial favourite is at a new location this year. The newly refurbished Stone Church (87 Carleton St) should add new character to the event. Hance Colburne will be MC and we will be listening to and discussing with Jan Wong, Grace O’Connell, Bridget Canning, and Margaret Gracie.

You’ll have to leave a little early if you want to make it to Craig Francis Power‘s reading from Skeet Love at 4:00 pm in Heroes’ Beacon. What’s a skeet you ask? Here is the Wikipedia definition.

Starting at 7:00 pm at the Kent Theatre (24 Coburg), we have Poetry Prélude where we will be entranced by Kathy Mac, R. William Patry and Clyde A. Wray. Come hungry to this event as Sankara Cuisine will be selling food by the plate.

The Poetry Slam will follow at 8:30 pm where our Prélude Poets will be judging verbal combatants contestants. Think you can take the heat? Then sign-up!
