Carmine Starnino reads with Paul Durcan... London? New York? Toronto? Nosir, in Cobourg, ON. Great opportunity to see a distinguished internationally renowned poet in an intimate setting:

Paul Durcan will do a Poetry Reading in Cobourg Tuesday, October 13, 2009 (MEET AT 66 KING EAST).

This is an amazing opportunity the Cobourg Poetry Workshop has been given!

Paul Durcan is an internationally acclaimed poet from Ireland who is a past winner of the prestigious Whitbread Prize and who is the author of over 25 critically-praised collections of poetry.

(Mr. Durcan will be reading in Cobourg 11 days before he reads in Toronto at the Harbourfront Reading series.)

To accommodate Mr. Durcan's busy schedule, our reading will be held on Tuesday, October 13 -- instead of our usual 3rd Thursday (so, not October 15).

Because Paul Durcan will give a 40 minute reading, this evening will feature only 2 poets (rather than our usual 3 readers).

Our second Guest Poet will be Carmine Starnino from Montreal.

We anticipate we could surpass what has been our biggest audience until now.

Below are 2 links you can click.

The first is some information about Paul Durcan:

The second links to an excellent piece in Northumberland Today (Thursday, October 8, 2009 edition), titled:

"Famed poets Durcan, Starnino to read in Cobourg Oct. 13"

Doors open 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 13, 2009 - MEET AT 66 KING EAST, Cobourg.
