Thanks from the pivot of my heart

Giant, Pivot-sized thanks to everyone who made it out to the launch last night. We had a housefull of poets and writers and friends and drinks and books (bad host – not enough chairs!) and a good time was had by all.

Special thanks go out to the feisty battalion of readers – Alex Boyd, Rebecca Rosenblum, Paul Vermeersch and Leigh Nash – and to Mikael and Veronica at the Press Club for making us feel cozy and welcome (and, have to add, rather tired this morning).

The next Pivot is October 29, featuring Sandra Alland, Sally Cooper and Fraser Sutherland. Same time, same place. Tell your friends!
