Last year I was a reader at Swoon: A Literary Evening of Love, Sex, and Chocolate, held at Cocoa Nymph in Kitsilano. This year, I have the privilege of being co-host with my friend Ruth Daniell. She’s the brains behind the operation; I’m more like Special Guest Star Heather Locklear. (Melrose Place fans will get the reference, though even mentioning it means I’m dating myself.)
And we have quite a list of talent lined up: Garth Martens, whose debut Prologue for the Age of Consequence, is coming out in April from Anansi; Sierra Skye Gemma, winner of the Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest; and Joelle Barron, winner of the Malahat Open Season Award for Poetry. And that’s just three of them! Check out the whole lineup at the Swoon website, and then join us on Friday, April 4, for a delightful and delovely evening.
