Necakov, Power, Ross, Smith reunion!
Very excited about tomorrow's reading in Toronto. Lillian Necakov, Nicholas Power, Jim Smith and I have been part of the same writing community since the early 1980s, and we're all appearing on the same bill at St. Clair/Silverthorn Library. I'm not sure that we've all ever read together before. Here's the skinny:
