Book Launch Trip – Part 3

More about the book launch trip East: I reconnected with my former Carleton prof Bob Hogg over masala dosa (a poet and now a miller, with tales!); attended the Ottawa launch of night flying at rob’s annual Yacht Club Regatta; read to old friends the poems I’d once written for them, in book form, and enjoyed good cheer together; met Stevie Szabad in person, fellow military brat author, and exchanged books; had lovely visits and kind billets with writers Anita Dolman and James Moran, and with long-lost lovely poet Allison Calvern, who I hadn’t seen since about 1999; thrilled to the hilarious Strikeforce poets’ bowling rematch, organized by jwcurry. more
