Rainy night in Calgary, much good stuff happening at Pages Bookshorp

 

Writer Fran Kimmel and Joan M. Baril  at Pages in Calgary at the launch of  Everything is So Political: A Collection of Short Stories by Canadian Writers held on May 30, 2013.

Going to Calgary gave me a chance to connect with a cousin I do not see often.  And it also gave me a chance to meet the many guests and writers at the launch of Everything is So Political.

Ably MC ed by editor Sandra McIntyre, writers Fran Kimmel and J. Paul Cooper gave brief readings from their stories.  A hilarious five minute play called the Extremists written by R. Jonathan Chapman was followed by another quick read by yours truly and then on to the wine and conversation.

Many thanks to Pages bookshop in Calgary for a fun evening. Also thanks to the full house of people who turned out on a rainy evening.
R. Jonathan Chapman, playwright and Joan M. Baril, coerced at the last minute to read a part in the play.
 
In Thunder Bay, the book, Everything is So Political, is available at the Northern Woman's Bookstore and on line at Chapters, Amazon etc.
