Poetry, Prose, Song, and Censorship: An Awesome Evening at Words of the Season
Last night, I had the pleasure to read at the Writers’ Community of Durham Region’s “Words of the Season in Poetry, Prose, and Song,” at Trinity Irish Pub and Restaurant in
slow (and expensive) service, and a bit of censorship (according to our MC, the
management are puritans), we had a great evening. , Whitby
I read an excerpt from chapter two of Underground, “A Gentleman’s Education.” I have to admit, I was a little worried about reading a dissection scene after the management’s request for “no more references to bodily functions.” Despite the perhaps not-so-supper-friendly subject matter, the piece was very well received. To read “A Gentleman’s Education,” and other chapters from Underground, visit www.cmgbooks.com/5.html.
Thanks to everyone who turned out to read and be read to, and thanks to the organizers of the event for putting together such an awesome night.
