That’s right — tonight is at last the night of YYC Winter’s Tale! We get started at seven with readings from three, count ’em, three poets — Joan Shillington, Tyler Perry and Vivian Hansen — as well as three fiction writers: myself, Lee Kvern and Sarah Johnson. We were a little concerned about the weather when we started organizing this event, imagining, as writers are wont to do, blizzards, ice storms, what have you. Turns out we currently have a temperature of + 9 as I write this at 11 AM, with showers forecast this evening.
So what better, on a warm and rainy February night, than to come in out of the wet and listen to fine readings, drink wine, munch snacks and buy books? Sounds pretty much perfect to me.
