Victoria Supports the Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology

Posted: November 10, 2009

Join Victoria’s Poet Laureate Linda Rogers for The Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology fundraiser at the Community Arts Centre Gallery of Greater Victoria—located at G6 – 1001 Douglas Street—on Friday, November 27th beginning at 7:00 pm.

Rogers is one of over twenty notable contributors to this unique compilation which collects anecdotes, reminiscences and poems by a roll call of famous writers about memorable days and nights spent at the A-frame, in addition to a selection of Purdy’s own writing which shows the depth of his feeling for the place where he put down his roots. Rogers has brought together some of Canada’s most intriguing poets—including Susan Stenson, Peter Trower and Len Gasparini—to read poems and reminiscences from The Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology at this evening’s event.

For more information, please call (250) 381-2787. All proceeds from The Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology will go to The Al Purdy A-frame Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving the Purdy A-frame as a retreat for future generations of Canadian writers.
