At these readings graduates of Brian Henry's writing classes get to strut their stuff. Come hear some of the most amazing emerging writers in the Toronto area reading some of the best work you’ll hear this year. This will be a fun get-together and everyone’s invited. Don’t miss it!
And if you want to read from your own work, email me, and I’ll let you know if there’s still room on the roster – as of now, there certainly is space – on both dates. (But you must arrange to read in advance; you can’t just show up on the day and hope to read.)
On Sunday, June 9, at the Wallace in Toronto, doors open at 11:45 a.m. noon. Arrive for lunch by 12:00 noon, or if you’re just having a drink or coffee and a snack, please arrive by 12:30. But because we’re monopolizing their second floor, you can’t order just a coffee (or they might not want us back). The actual readings will start by 1:30 and go to about 3:30. We must be finished, paid and out by 4:00.
On Sunday, June 23, at the Barra Fion in Burlington, doors open a titch later, at 12 noon. Arrive for lunch by 12:15, or if you’re just having a drink or coffee and a snack, please arrive by 12:45. But because they’re opening exclusively for us, you can’t order just a coffee (or they might not want us back). The actual readings will start at about 1:30 and go to about 3:30 / 3:45. 
If possible, RSVP as soon as possible and let me know you’re coming: brianhenry@sympatico.ca
I look forward to seeing you all there! ~Brian
