June 3, 2022, 5-6pm – second hour of a two hour show, continuing with that May 25th Kingston book launch/reading at Novel Idea Bookstore you’ll then hear the remainder of that event with Sadiqa de Meijer reading from her books: Leaving Howe Island, The Outer Wards (Véhicule Press), and alfabet/alphabet (Palimpsest Press), Jim Johnstone reading from his Infinity Network (Véhicule Press), and Kirby from Poetry is Queer (Palimpsest Press).
It started with a book. And then, a card.* Some online lovin’. Email exchanges. A plan, with a ticket to ride.
All I know is I wanted to sit with the poet who wrote alfabet/alphabet & she in turn wanted to meet me.
We didn’t have to wait for a reading, or a panel, or any such thing. “Let’s plan an afternoon stroll.” A simple day trip.
And, we did.
Thank you Sadiqa.
*I carry to this day
