Hi there, Fictitious Blogerati:
Stuart Ross and Kate Sutherland have this great reading series that they've kindly invited me to read at with Maggie Helwig. I've known Maggie for years, but have never had the pleasure of reading with her. She's a novelist, poet, essayist, publisher, and social activist.
Stuart passed this notice along to me:
This Sunday, the Fictitious Reading Series is pleased to present Maggie Helwig and Gary Barwin. We hope you can make it to this very special reading!
And please pass this notice along to anyone else you think might be interested. Thanks!
Sunday, May 27, 7:30 p.m.
This Ain't the Rosedale Library
