IV ce soir

Tonight at Toronto's IV Lounge reading series:
Stan Dragland (The Drowned Lands, novel)
Heather Wood (Barbies, Breasts & Bathing suits, fiction)
Jaclyn Piudik (The Tao of Loathliness, poems)
Your host for the evening, as usual, is the charming Alex Boyd, writer-guy.
I will be shuffling on over to the Lounge to hear Mr. Dragland, for sure, as I missed his book launch earlier this month. Also this evening, Taddle Creek magazine is doing a series of poetry recordings at the Lounge for some mysterious, as yet unannounced release. My buddy Chris Chambers -- gaze into his sultry eyes here -- will be recording one of his new pieces, and I have been asked to step in for an AWOL poet and record a piece not of my making. Fun.
