I’ve gotten quite settled into the academic year in London, Ont. over the past few months. To my delight, I’ve also been given the honour of showing off some of my zines and chapbooks here at the upcoming Local Authors’ Book Fair this Saturday, October 25, from 10am to 2pm at Covent Garden Market (upstairs on the mezzanine level)! The fair is part of WordsFest London, a weekend-long celebration of “all things wordy,” and is only one of many amazing events listed at their website.
During the fair I will be showing and selling some of the books I created over this past summer, including the mixed media chapbook “an erratic sample,” “Push,” “Room” and “Desk Index” zines printed on vellum, and my “O Our Ism” photographic book of erasures. I’ll also be featuring chapbooks by fellow poet and student Jeremy Colangelo, which I haven’t laid eyes on but which (judging by the work of his I’ve been privileged enough to read) should be fantastic. And finally, if all goes well, I’ll be ‘playing’ my newest collaborative poetic project with visitors to the table. If you’re in town, you should come check it out (and say hi)!
