Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat.
Hanukkah is well underway the dredels are spinning.
Put on your warm coat and come down to the reading to get a mindful of stories and poems from:

Frank Flynn and Phil Oakley
Frank Flynn's plays have received critical acclaim in 5 Canadian cities. His work has been studied at the post-graduate level at one Canadian University and he has won acting awards in 2 Provinces. Frank was recently a guest Lecturer at Concordia University. And his mother says he's a very nice boy.
Phil Oakley, infamous Peterborough actor, will be reading an excerpt from Frank Flynn's newest script.
Emily Pohl-Weary
Toronto writer Emily Pohl-Weary excels at finding success on her own terms. She co-authored the Hugo Award-winning book Better to Have Loved: The Life of Judith Merril (2002), and edited the critically acclaimed anthology Girls Who Bite Back: Witches, Mutants, Slayers and Freaks (2004). She will be reading from her first novel, A Girl Like Sugar, a ghost love story that the Globe and Mail recently called "wonderfully explicit" and "quietly redemptive." More info at
Laura Taylor
Laura Elise Taylor has studied creative writing with Janice Kulyk Keefer and Greg Hollingshead, and holds an M.A. from the University of Alberta. Born in Port Credit, Ontario, she works as a freelance writer and documentary photographer in Guelph, Ontario. Her next photography show, Sleeping Beauty: Images of Cuba, will take place at the Bookshelf Restaurant in Guelph in November, 2004. She is the co-author and main photographer of a popular science book on cottage culture forthcoming from Boston Mills Press in 2006. When not writing or shooting you will find her on a canoe trip, salsa dancing, or, if she's lucky, on the road less travelled.
PJ Thomas
P.J. Thomas was an editor and arts administrator until she became seriously mentally ill at age 30. She spent the next 10 years in and out of psychiatric institutions. Her first published novel, Almost Up and Down, was written in the last five years of these experiences. Copies of Almost Up and Down will be available at the reading.
