Last year I was in Rome and wrote poems to celebrate Canada Day. In 2015 and 2016 I read my poems for Canada Day as Mississauga’s Inaugural Poet Laureate. This year is different. I stay home to say my hello. So glad the videos/photos/poems bring us good memories. I wish you all Happy Canada Day!
The Inaugural Love Poetry Festival in honour of Milton Acorn & Gwen MacEwen at Ward’s Island, Toronto on Saturday was a great success. I was proud to read with Trevor Abes, George Elliott Clarke, Whitney French, Karen Mulhallen, Honey Novick and Robert Priest. Thank Michelle Alfano and George Elliott Clarke for organizing this event with a beautiful venue and Roger Sharp’s music. Here is the link for details. Thanks!
