I'm heading out to the special Feb. 29 edition of the Alexandra Writers' Open Mic Night. That starts up at 7 PM at Owl's Nest Books, located in the lovely Brittania Shopping Plaza at 815A 49 Ave. SW. Readings, refreshments, fun, all that sort of thing. And if you're one of those people who like books, it so happens Owl's Nest has those, too. Plus I understand there's some talk of beer involved.
And yeah, Groundhog Day. What's up with that, Lori, you're thinking. Wasn't that like a month ago? It was indeed. I refer to Groundhog Day the movie, wherein the characters are doomed to live out the same day over and over and over again. I feel like my novel-in-waiting is in a bit of a Groundhog Day thing, here. But soon enough, something will have to happen, I suppose.
Up next: Writing in the Works 5, at 1:30 PM Saturday, March 10 at Memorial Park Library, 1221 - 2 St. SW. This year's lineup of readers is Rea Tarvydas, Robin van Eck, myself, Jane Cawthorne and Rita Bozi; hosted by Rona Altrows. Always a good time!
And then another multi-reader event the evening of March 15: When Cowgirls get the Blues, 7 PM at Shelf Life Books, 1302 - 4 St. SW. Readings that night from me, Lee Kvern, Betty Jane Hegerat, Barb Howard and Nerys Parry. There will also be wine and some of Lee's famous and suggestive cupcakes. Yee-haw!
Well, back to work. Hope to see you at an event!
