The Side by Side Multilingual Reading

It was a warm and balmy Fall evening at the Charlotte Street Art Center when writers of nationality, culture, language and love for people gathered to read theirs and others’ poems to a special gathering. It was the Multilingual Reading to top off the Side by Side Festival of Literary Translation … and unfortunately, my camera was acting stranger than usual so the pictorial is less than usual. But I think I salvaged the cream.

Featured writers were Mark Allaby, Joe Blades, Roger Moore, Giovanni Merlini, Nela Rio, Jo-Anne Elder and others …

This is what happens to a poet who tries to commit 50 acts of random poetry in one week.
