Bowering back on his feats again


Pop­u­lar favourite George Bow­er­ing will be back in Lon­don, Ontario, one of his favourite cities, for a read­ing at Lon­don Pub­lic Library, on Wednes­day, Sep­tem­ber 20.

Bowering’s read­ing is part of the Poet­ry Lon­don lit­er­ary fes­tiv­i­ties, tak­ing place over the course of Sep­tem­ber in Canada’s prod­uct test­ing cap­i­tal.  Lon­don, of course, is where Bowering’s twin Greg Curnoe lived & worked.

Bowering’s most recent books are The World, I Guess;  the re-issue of A Short Sad Book, feat. an intro­duc­tion by Erin Moure, who has her own book com­ing out soon from New Star; and some­thing called The Hock­ey Scrib­bler.

Not much on the inter­nets yet about this event; you might want to check the Lon­don Pub­lic Library site, and/or the one belong­ing to Poet­ry Lon­don.
