Literary Cocktails 2021

Another fabulous Literary Cocktails event wrapped! Thank you to all who attended, to Nisha Patel for hosting, and especially to Jennifer Bowering Delisle, Aidan Chafe, and Micheline Maylor for their powerful readings from Deriving, Gospel Drunk, and The Bad Wife.

It wouldn’t be a party without all the great people who support our authors and their work – thank you to everyone who joined us. And, if you missed it, catch the video on our YouTube channel!

Audreys Books was our terrific co-host. Please be sure to buy these wonderful new poetry collections from your local indie bookstore.

Our thanks to the League of Canadian Poets and Canada Council for their support.
