April 12 Book Fest & launches

I was happy to meet this good folks of the Canadian Author’s Association last night thinking about remixing poetry and source materials. Fun was had all around. (A few people out of shot.)

The Canadian Authors Association of National Capital Region will hold its 1st Annual Book Fest this Saturday — April 12, 2014. That’s at the RA Centre by Billings Bridge.

There will be book for sale by a few dozen writers, 2 minute flash readings, and a panel.

Date: Saturday 12 April, 2014, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. (lunch break 12:30–1:00 p.m.).
Place: Clark Hall, RA Centre, 2451 Riverside Drive, Ottawa (free parking).
Entry: $5 coupon which can be used towards purchase of any book!
Raffle: Raffle of donated books, to be held during inter-panel breaks.
Food: Full restaurant/bar within the centre.

A few of the books that will be there:
travel: Called to Egypt on the Back of the Wind
Called to Egypt on the Back of the Wind is a travelogue and history of Anne McLaughlin’s travel thru the ancient parts of Egypt. It will also be at the signing, naturally.
