Two Virgins; Cowtown / Punktown; Dead Bird Through the Cat Door

That’s the Virgin Mary and the Virgin Lori at the grand opening of Shelf Life Books last Saturday, shot by my pal and official photographer Jan Markley. The event was truly a blast — the readings were great, lots of people turned out and Shelf Life is owned and operated by some great book lovers. And lunch before and drinks after at Boxwood were both very nice. A very good Saturday, all in all.
Speaking of The Virgins, this Saturday Dan Hayes of The Golden Calgarians and myself will be talking about all things old-school Calgary punk in our program Cowtown / Punktown, one of the many interesting programs comprising the One Book, One Calgary event inspired by Aritha van Herk’s Mavericks. We’ll be in the John Dutton Theatre on the second floor of the Central Library (616 Macleod Tr. SE) from 4:15 – 5:00. Looking forward to looking backward!
Also looking forward to the launch of the aforementioned Jan Markley’s new novel, Dead Bird Through the Cat Door, at Owl’s Nest Books, 815A-49th Ave. SW (Britannia Shopping Plaza) at 2PM, Saturday Nov. 27th. Jan’s last launch was a juggernaut and I expect this one will be no different. Nothing like a good book launch!
