Bite-sized bits of Lexiconjury

Tuesday night's Lexiconjury had an unusual sampler/assortment/short-attention-span format. It was the Toronto poetry equivalent of MuchMusic: if you don't like what's on, wait 3 minutes & it'll change! But I liked pretty much everything that was on; it was a terrific all-female roster of poets and fiction authors. Above, Sharon Harris, the mind behind the lovely & amazing (recently featured in eye weekly!), gives her first feature reading at Lex, under the encouraging gaze of Lexiconjurers-in-chief Bill Kennedy and Angela Rawlings.

Here's Sarah Lucille Selecky being photographed by Sharon while reading a short story about chickens:

Here are a few more pictures, not very many. I kept taking pictures of Sharon because she was taking pictures of everyone else, so it's a bit of a Sharonfest. There's also a good one of Bill waving a Bristol-board sign and looking demented.
