The Scream in High Park

Get ready and pack your picnic basket, a favourite person or two, and a bottle of wine or three–The Scream in High Park is only, oh, a month away(ish), and as always, it’s going to be fantastic.

I’m grateful to have the opportunity to read with such a talented crew of writers:

* Claudia Dey
* Sonnet L’Abbé
* Ron Giii
* David McFadden
* Motion
* Sina Queyras
* Ray Robertson
* Mariko Tamaki

What will be in my picnic basket:

*Cheese pastry from Athens Pastries
*Couple bottles of Pinot Grigio
*Cheese curds
