Carl Sandburg was a decent sort, too*

Who knew that Kitchener-Waterloo, *hog processor to the world, tool and die maker, stacker of paper* etc. would be so very fond of a night of poetry?
The two night Laurier Poetry Fest opened with a bang at the Registry Theatre tonight. I just got back and an overflow crowd of over two hundred hearty souls braved the vile weather. Organizers, who did a great job all the way around would have been over the moon with half the crowd, so kudos to everyone who came out. All the poets, some of the best Canada has, were brilliant, especially the first of the evening Christopher Dewdney. Full marks to the Registry Theatre and everyone at WLU Press. Please come through tomorrow if you can. It was glorious tonight.
