The Al Purdy
A-Frame Celebration

"The preservation of this home is akin to the preservation of Canadian literary history.
— Margaret Atwood

This is a special evening of poetry, talk, film and storytelling in celebration of Canadian poet Al Purdy and the A-Frame Association—the effort dedicated to restoring Purdy’s house and encouraging a new generation of Canadian writers.

 

Readers include two poets laureate: George Bowering and John Steffler; the inaugural writer-in-residence Katherine Leyton; Rob Thomas, last year’s winner of the Newlove Prize; and a host of other writers, including Susan Gillis, Charlotte Gray, David O’Meara, Sandra Ridley and Stuart Ross. There will be a silent auction of Purdyanna items—rare books, photos from the Purdy album, broadsides and other items—and donations to support the A-Frame Association will be gratefully accepted.
