On Saturday night, I had the amazing opportunity to share the stage with some amazing poets and raise money for a good cause. Thank you to David Brydges for putting together an amazing collection of poems and finding a space for us to share our voices. Also a big thank you to Suzanne Hunter, Cassy Welburn and Kathy Fisher for your beautiful poems and making me feel so welcome when I was so nervous. Thank you to Moyo Williams whose music accompanied the poetry, he is an old soul in the body of an 11 year old. Thank you to Contemporary Calgary for giving us a space for the launch. Finally thank you to Robyn Gilli for sharing her experience with the fire and the Red Cross for all their hard work up North in helping with the recovery effort. It was an amazing night and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to share my work with friends and family.
Here is an article that discuss the upcoming book launch and the poet who put together this fantastic collection: http://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/oilsands-poet-launches-fort-mcmurray-fire-book-to-aid-library
