My Most Anticipated Film

I just discovered this trailer for a documentary based on the life of the American poet Larry Levis whose poetry collections have been my constant companions for the last several years. The film is entitled "My Story in a Late Style of Fire" after one of Larry's poems and is directed by Michele Poulos. This documentary has very quickly risen to the top of my list of most anticipated films. If anyone knows where I might view this film or purchase a copy of it, please do let me know.

Rare Public Appearance

I will be doing a rare public reading this coming Sunday February 6th at Hamilton’s Lit Live Reading Series where I will be sharing the stage with other poets Jim Johnstone, Chris Pannell, R. W. Megens, Kildare Dobbs and David Seymour.

Besides reading poems from my first two collections, I will be reading some poems from my forthcoming book Winter Cranes which will be published next fall.

The event starts at 7:30 pm at the Sky Dragon Centre, King William Street, Hamilton, ON.

I hope to see you all there.
