Join Stephanie Bolster, author of A Page from the Wonders of Life on Earth (Brick Books), Susan Glickman, author of The Smooth Yarrow (Vehicule Press), and Darren Bifford, author of Wedding in Fire Country (Nightwood Editions). Hosted (for the last time) by Sachiko Murakami.

It's Sachiko's last Pivot. Sniff. She's brought la belle province to Dundas West for her goodbye (or should we say... au revoir) party. Le yay!

Come on down to the Press Club for farewell hugs, fantastic poetry– and to find out who will be your new host in fall 2012… Show starts at 8 p.m.
