I am just, apparently, introducing Joel from the author bio at the back of the Coming Attractions 06 (Ottawa ON: Oberon Press, 2006) anthology he was in; three authors, three stories each (he still has copies for $15 if you're interested).
Joel appearing to read a story of some sort. I met him moons ago when he came west to one of the ottawa small press book fairs to represent that magazine he used to be part of, QWERTY.
Trisia Eddy, looking over her shoulder at something.
We don't know why Joel looks like this; something about sitting at the bar?
Thomas Wharton [see his 12 or 20 questions here] gritting his teeth for some reason; he read a magnificent non-fiction piece about bears.
Thomas Wharton and Christine Stewart (who reads in Calgary this week with Lisa Robertson); Lainna suggested "twins separated at birth," perhaps.
Heather MacLeod and unknown; I mean, she's known, I've only met her half a dozen times, but why can't I remember people's names?
Christine Stewart [see her 12 or 20 here] listening to something that Trisia Eddy is saying.
Christine Stewart (again) and Trisia Eddy (again).
Winnipeg poet/critic Dennis Cooley [see his 12 or 20 here] and Edmonton poet/critic Douglas Barbour [see his 12 or 20 here]; Cooley had actually read earlier in the afternoon at the University of Alberta, and was nice enough to come by the reading to hang around.
