we’re heading into one heck of a busy literary season, so i just thought i’d mention a few upcoming readings and activities that i’m directly involved in in the next 10 days or so:
Saturday, Sept 20, 2008
AIDS Walk For Life (Ottawa)
Walk starts at 7pm, registration at 6pm.
The walk raises awareness and money to help people with AIDS/HIV.
If you are so inclined, please join the Ottawa Writers & Friends team or sponsor us.
Bywords has been taking part in this walk since 2003. and last year, we changed the team name to Ottawa Writers & Friends in order to include writers of all stripes and also writer groupies :)
Let’s show Ottawa that we care about the people in our community. C’mon out. It’s always great fun. This is the only time you’ll ever see me in a tutu. Drinks after at the Royal Oak at Bank & Gloucester, where i will drink beer...in a tutu (that is, i will be in the tutu, not the beer). Oh, and if you can't make it out, you can donate here
