On Saturday, April 13th, I’m going to take part in a group reading with other Slocan Valley poets at Silverton Memorial Hall, 203 Lake Ave. (Highway 6), Silverton, BC.

The free event starts at 8 pm. The evening in honour of National Poetry Month was organized by Keith Liggett of Silverton, who formerly was an East Kootenay literary entrepreneur extraordinaire, putting together literary programming for years in Fernie and at the St. Eugene Resort north of Cranbrook.

Keith will also be reading on April 13, as will Barbara Curry Mulcahy, Art Joyce, and musician Kate Smyles.

Twenty per cent of book sales at the event will go to the Slocan Lake Arts Council’s gallery revitalization fund.
