Summer poetry reading at the EB House

I had the great privilege and honour to read with three exceptional poets on Saturday, 8 July 2023, in Great Village, N.S., at the Elizabeth Bishop House: Rosaria Campbell, Kalya Geitzler and Margo Wheaton. Over 25 people attended – a lively gathering if ever there was one. I hope everyone had as nice a time as I did. I am so grateful that once again such in person convegences are possible. Ever so uplifting to meet with friends and strangers and share poetry, especially in such a beloved setting as the EB House. Here are a few photos of the event.
