Gung Haggis Fat Choy Poetry Night – January 12, 2004, Monday – 7:30pm Vancouver Public Library

There will be a free Gung Haggis Fat Choy Poetry Night on Monday January 12, 2004 at 7:30p.m. at the Vancouver Public Library (350 West Georgia St) in the Alice Mackay Room.

Todd writes: “Take a mixture of Scottish Canadian poets, Chinese Canadian poets, a Chilean poet, a bagpiper who likes Chinese food, a Vancouver Book Award nominee born in Scotland who happens to be of Chinese ancestry, – and give them a stage… sure to promote good will and inter-culturalism everywhere!”

This event is organized by Asian Canadian Writers Workshop, World Poetry Reading Series, and the Vancouver Public Library.
