Sorry I didn’t post yesterday (family obligation, busy weekend).
Which, thankfully, also included this:
A festival dedicated to words, words, words.
All that was missing was someone hawking the OED. One day, I’m going to own a complete print edition.
The library has been advertising for months.
I’ve been looking forward to the event ever since I couldn’t get to last years which was at the Farmers’ Market.
This year the festival was in front of the main library.
I go there a lot (at least, once a week).
Unfortunately, the day was tooo hot, for me.
I am a Fall creature; I thrive best between 25 Celsius and minus 25 Celsius – a temperature that is somewhat moderate, not too cold.
There were giant games, retail booths and three tents/venues dedicated just to readings.
Words, words, word…
Brought to you by the letter W.
I went early. I left early. I almost melted in the heat.
Thank the stars, the air conditioned library was one of the reading venues!
I stayed for the poetry slam which was number 1 on my to do list.
Tonight Its Poetry hosted the slam.
My favourite poet was Khodi Dill; his poem was about the demise of libraries.
After 2 hours, in the blazing (30 degrees Celsius) sun, I took the bus home.
Here is the swag I collected.
I love swag…
The only item I paid for was the bag ( a toonie) – is it not lovely?
I’m hoping next year that the day is not so hot so that I can enjoy more words, words, words!
