by Christopher Canniff
A literary pub night was held on May 23rd at the NOW Lounge, hosted by PWAC Toronto and the Canadian Authors Association (CAA) Toronto Branch.
Overall, the evening was very successful with over a dozen readers of prose and poetry who read to a packed and attentive house. There were stories of murder, art, coping with difficult children, humorous stories, and poetry, many with local settings.
Nate Hendley, VP Special Events and Networking for PWAC Toronto, served as Master of Ceremonies and also organized the event.
PWAC readers included Luigi Benetton, Sue Bowness, Sharon Crawford, Paul Lima, Ellen Michelson and Irene Davis. The event also featured PWAC readers from out-of-town: Heather Grace-Stewart (from Montreal) and Dave Preston (from Victoria, BC). Readers from the CAA included Christopher Canniff, K.V. Skeene, Suparna Ghosh, Jake Hogeterp (left), Bianca Lakoseljac and Ed Seaward.
