Juan O'Neill Passes

Juan O'Neill of Sasquatch Literary and Arts Performance Series

From Chris Sorrenti's email:
Heather Ferguson has booked the downstairs room of the Royal Oak for this Sunday, March 19, at 2 p.m for a special memorial get-together/poetry reading in Juan's honour. All are welcome to join us in celebrating his life and friendship, and sharing a related anecdote or poem.

Ironically enough, Linda Mondoux, Ottawa Citizen copy editor, had a column in the paper today (Wednesday) in the City Editorial section titled, "Poetry in a Basement Bar" where his reading series was featured.
Mr. O'Neill's obit appears in Thursday's Citizen on page B6.

I'll be there Sunday. Funny thing is, I was just thinking this past weekend that I haven't made it out to enough Sasquatch readings. Damn.

Juan will be missed by many, myself included. The community is the poorer with his passing.

My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
