Word On The Street - Halifax 2009
On September 27, I had the great pleasure of reading for an audience at the Halifax Word On the Street. This had been a dream of mine for years; I've been a long-time attendee of WOTS, going back to the late-nineties when tents along Spring Garden Road did a poor job of keeping the rain off the books. The rain did little to dampen book-lovers' spirits, though; readers are a determined bunch, and Maritimers know how to dress for rain.
Fast-forward to 2009, at the Cunard Centre by Halifax Harbour. I wore two hats: in the morning I performed string quartets with Symphony Nova Scotia colleagues for a small, but attentive audience. Later in the afternoon, I returned to the same stage and read from my novella, Harbour View, to an equally attentive audience. I thought I might as well start at the beginning, so I read from Chapter 1.
