OIWF Day 8

It was S.E. Hinton night at the festival. Though she didn't pack in the crowds compared to Ian Rankin, the auditorium was full. Damon Galgut dropped in for one last night as an attendee. Previously he was in Toronto for a reading. Murray Wilson gave an eclectic reading as the final event for the festival. He read some of Ralph Gustaphson's poetry, illustrated some Chinese characters and read from Sam's Bike (I think?), a story of the repair of a bicycle in China. Oddly charming. That is it at least for the major Fall writers festival. Starting October 7th is the Inaugural Canadian Spoken Wordlympics Festival at the National Archives, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, October 7-10, 2004.
