Word on the Street

Today’s “Word on the Street” festival was held at Queen’s Park in perfect end-of-September weather. By far the most enthusiastic author I heard was George Elliott Clarke, reading from his dramatic poem “Trudeau: Long March, Shining Path” (which I’ve now ordered for the Library). Seeing Clarke’s smile as he reads and hearing the pleasure in his voice would make many people want to be a writer (and would make everyone want to be a reader).
