Real live poet coming to Halifax

Hey, Haligonians.

Sandra sent me a tip that her friend and coworker Alex Boyd is heading this way as part of an east coast tour. He's a real live poet from Toronto. Sandra's had great things to say about him over the years. I went out with 'er to see him at a reading one night in Toronto -- I don't remember if I was able to stay for his segment of the evening, as I was called out on a reporting assignment and had to scurry out into the snowy night. In any case, if you have the time, I bet he's well worth seeing.

He and fellow poet and friend Dani Couture will be at:

Mahone Bay, NS
Thurs Oct 25, 8pm
The Biscuit Eater Bookstore and Cafe,
16 Orchard St

Halifax, NS
Fri Oct 26, 12 Noon
Spring Garden Road Memorial Public Library,
5381 Spring Garden Road

Halifax, NS (Dani Couture only)
Fri Oct 26, 8pm
Venus Envy,
1598 Barrington Street

I'd go see him, but we're off to Annapolis Royal that weekend for a romantic anniversary getaway. Go see Alex and buy his stuff if you're into the poetry thang!

Thanks again to Sandra for the heads-up.

  1. We set an arbitrary anniversary on the estimated date that we moved in together, so this'll be two years "officially." Several more years on the "development" phase of the relationship.
