Verbatim: A Novel

Notes on an unconventional book

Despite winter weather, there are readings popping up

A good way to start the new year is to do a reading, and in January I’ll participate in two, with excellent company. Here I’ll just mention the first one.

At 7:00 p.m. on 11 January, in the Faculty Lounge of the Main Building of the University of Prince Edward Island, I’ll give a reading from Verbatim: A Novel. Joining me are Chris Benjamin, David Helwig, Hugh MacDonald , and Yvette Doucette. Chris, from Nova Scotia, will be here to do the PEI launch of his 2010 novel Drive-By Saviours; David (past-Poet Laureate of PEI) will be launching his newest novel, Killing McGee; and it’s a safe bet Hugh (current Poet Laureate of PEI) and Yvette will be reading poetry. A diverse night with great writers, and it should be a lot of fun. With refreshments, and it’s free. What could be better in one of the rougher months of winter?
