Friends and family of the poet Gerry Gilbert will gather for an evening of poetry and anecdotes to celebrate his literary and artistic legacy.
Special performing guests and participants will include VICTOR COLEMAN, DAVID MCFADDEN, JEREMY GILBERT and NICKY DRUMBOLIS. Texts sent to us from B.C. by JAMIE REID and PETER CULLEY will be read aloud – with feeling and intelligence we hope. We’re trying to track down some of Gerry’s film/video work. And his Bernard Leach obituary which appeared we think in “Only Paper Today.”
