Anvil Press and The Ottawa International Writers Festival present…
Michael Dennis has been writing and publishing for 40 years, and for the past four years has been reviewing a book of poetry every two days for his blog Today's Book of Poetry.
Now it's time to celebrate Michael's biggest and most exciting book to date — Bad Engine: New and Selected Poems, edited and introduced by Stuart Ross, hot off the Anvil Press!
Tonight, several special guests from the Ottawa poetry community — including Sandra Ridley, Stephen Brockwell, Marilyn Irwin, rob mclennan, and Pearl Pirie — will be reading Michael's poems before Michael himself takes the floor.
Books will be for sale. Astonishing conversation will occur. There will be laughs and maybe even tears. And all in the beautifully eccentric coziness of the Avant Garde Bar, whose food and drink menu is an event in itself.
