during my stint as host sunday night i neglected to thank sean, neil, kira, thea, leslie (whose last name is wilson but who is not related to the other wilsons), the staff and volunteers. this bothers me because i really wanted to say out loud once again how much i appreciate all they do for this city. the writers festival is the highlight of the year x 2.
the ottawa international writers festival is a role model that shows us all what can be done when one has vision, dedication and is willing to work hard.
charles has a very cool photo of sean on his site today.
i raise my big mug of Guinness to the Wilsons. this city wouldn’t be anywhere near as interesting without them.
