Fundraiser for Kogawa House hosted by 30th Anniversary celebration of Federation of BC Writers

Thursday, December 7th, 7pm
Cafe Montmartre
4362 Main Street @ 28th Ave.
Vancouver

The Federation of BC Writers is hosting an evening of readings and will encourage donations for Joy Kogawa House
– the childhood home of the Obasan author.  Cafe Montmarte is a
smallish cafe which regularly hosts readings and musical
performances.  Expect it to be intimately crowded, with a good
crowd.

Fiona Tinwei Lam
is a friend and has been featured at both the Gung Haggis Fat Choy
dinner and the GHFC World Poetry Night at the Vancouver Public
Library.  Alexis Kienlen was featured last year at the GHFC World
Poetry Night, and has often attended the GHFC dinner as a volunteer and
editor for Ricepaper Magazine.

I am planning on attending, and might even be wearing my kilt – as Dec. 7th is also Kilts Night at Doolin's Irish Pub from with music by the Halifax Wharf Rats from 9pm to midnight.
