Ellie (elliearcher) | 1217 comments That sounds exciting! I looked it up and Jenny Xie will be one of the readers. Also I love Yusef Komunyakaa.

Thank you for letting me know. May 22th should work for me and West 10th street is not a terrible trip (about 1-1 1/2 hours).

Magdelanye | 2245 comments Today I outdid myself, for this is the writers festival in sechelt and I was able to score a ticket for Adam Pottle. The challenge was getting to the 9am session. Did I ever mention there's no bus service this far up and so I was on the road with my thumb out by 8 and just made it. I really wanted to hear his voice and it was splendid to get his autograph on my notes!
Then it was back on the road and made it back to Madeira Park for the free 2 hours of chamber music there.
Tomorrow Eden Robinson is sold out but I will be there to hear in the overflow area.

Petra | 779 comments I'm late in replying but I'm so happy you made it to the festival, Magdelanye!
Eden Robinson would be interesting to hear. I hope you made it to her session.
I'm not happy that you have to hitchhike, though. Makes me nervous.

Magdelanye | 2245 comments i'd hitchhike around the world to be with Eden again.
Yes she is wonderful, and her laugh and hugs!

today this topic was red flagged so it certainly doesnt matter that you were late in replying. Flight Paths really is about pathways and a different way of moving through time. GR is sort of similar. We can be extremely moved by a review written years ago by someone we have never heard of, and that old review becomes part of our now.
