En la calle San Sebastian : Poetry Everywhere : Video : The Poetry Foundation

Martin Espada read the other night at Concordia. One got the feeling he had read those poems many times, many locations, until they were perfect performances. And it was good. It worked. A pleasure to hear.

Liz Bachinsky also tore up the stage. Love a poet who plays to the crowd by not playing to the crowd.

Jason Camlot and Dave McGimpsey also read very well. A great, diverse night. One wonders though, why so few Montrealers are showing up for these amazing readings organized by Summer Literary Seminars?? More readings next week. Check the schedule.
