This is for the first of the readings on what Regina poet Tracy Hamon and I are calling The De-tour.
Calgary Herald: The To-Do List
April 16, 2010
Fri MIREILLE PERRON The artist's new show at Stride is (wait for it) Laboratory of Feminist Pataphysics Presents: Ateliers of the Near Future. ART, p14-17.
Sat FROM VIENNA TO RIO The CPO takes listeners from Europe to a land where winter is just arriving. Thank goodness it's only a metaphorical journey. CONCERTS, p6-9.
Sat + Sun SUPER TRAIN Canada's largest model train show just keeps on rolling. This year, it pulls into the Subway Soccer Centre. SPECIAL EVENTS, p18-20.
Mon ARIEL GORDON The poet reads from Hump. And, no, her latest collection is not a salute to Wednesday, so leave the kids at home. LITERARY, p18.
Tue RUBBING STONE ENSEMBLE New Works Calgary's resident ensemble is named for a glacial erratic, but its performances are focused delights. CONCERTS, p6-9.
Over the next week, we'll hit Edmonton, Athabasca and Lethbridge, Alberta and then also at the Wallace Stegner House in Eastend, Saskatoon.
And then I'm home just in time for the Manitoba Book Awards on Sunday (literally just in time, as I'll be driving in from Regina that day...) and my reading with Sandra Ridley & Jennifer Londry on Tuesday.
