At The Blue Metropolis Festival

I have been invited to attend the 2007 Blue Metropolis festival in Montreal, Quebec - fast becoming Canada's major literary gathering. This year, both Michael Ondaatje and Margaret Atwood will be appearing, as well as rising star Heather O'Neill.

I'll be reading on the Wednesday, alongside John Burnside, Jason Camlot, Carmine Starnino and others; then launching two books, Language Acts (co-edited book of essays with JC, as above) on the Friday, and Winter Tennis on the Sunday (part of the DC Books spring launch).

More info below and a link to the review (out today) of Language Acts in The Montreal Gazette.
