Join us for another Lit Live Reading Series featuring a dynamic line-up of talented writers from across Canada and elsewhere reading both prose and poetry and hosted by legendary local shelf jockey, Bryan Prince. The details are below, but first a poem by Swinburne about February and lit that lights.
Because, when was the last time you thought about Swinburne. Oh yeah, that embarrassing tattoo from first year.
Wan February with weeping cheer,
Whose cold hand guides the youngling year
Down misty roads of mire and rime,
Before thy pale and fitful face
The shrill wind shifts the clouds apace
Through skies the morning scarce may climb.
Thine eyes are thick with heavy tears,
But lit with hopes that light the year's.
