Pivot alternative: Dennis Lee

I hope you’re all familiar by now with the amazing lineup of events at this year’s Scream Literary Festival – but just in case, here are a few of my picks (which, full disclosure, I will be participating in in some fashion or another…):

Chapters 11: The Bankruptcy Walking Tour

Yes, yours truly will be leading a group of mourners around the Annex this Saturday, July 4 to peel off the bakery and men’s clothing store facades of various businesses to reveal the dearly departed independent bookstores which once operated underneath. If you’re curious, grab your black umbrella and meet us at the Victory Cafe at 1. p.m.

If Hope Disorders Words: Dennis Lee Reprised – The Book-Length Reading

The annual book-length dinner is – strike allowing – happening in the atrium of the Toronto Archives on Friday July 10, featuring Dennis Lee reading from Civil Elegies, as well as Un and Yes/No. Not to be missed. Get your tickets for the dinner ($40 – yum) or just for the reading ($15) online at the link above or at any Type Books location before this Sunday – they’re going fast! I’ll save you a seat at my table :)

And of course there’s a ton of other stuff going on for just about any literary palate, so check out the schedule (if you haven’t already) or the Facebook group, natch.
