Party!

A friend today pointed out that I've been remiss in not publicizing the launch party for that there book over there in the left margin yet.

The event takes place Wed., Jan. 9, at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, starting at 7:30 pm, as part of the This Is Not A Reading Series (TiNaRS for the cognoscenti).

It features performances of Celine Dion songs and other aesthetic curiosities by 2006 Polaris Prize winner Final Fantasy, Laura Barrett and The Blankket (with perhaps one more performer tba), and an excerpt from the one-woman show Celine Speaks by Laura Landauer aka Gypsy Miller. There will be a short onstage conversation between me and writer/Harper's contributing editor/U of T philosophy professor Mark Kingwell, and DJ'ing by Brian Joseph Davis. The price is nada.

If you're on Facebook, there's an event page here.

OK, I ordered it. Your book I mean. It actually makes a decent gift for that music geek on your list. Your subliminal message worked! Er maybe it was blatant.

Fabulous. I would so love to be there -- perhaps I can sneak out of IAJE for a hot minute. It would be worth it for the incredulous repsonses I'd get from other IAJE attendees alone ("You went to WHAT last night?")
