Today was the winter launch of Tower Poetry Society's book. It was very attended even though the day outside was damp and dark.

Inside the lovely Carnegie Gallery, there was beautiful art, jewellery, pottery and what I particularly enjoyed was seeing the shell work done by an artist.

The launch got started at 2 p.m. with various readers reading not only their own work, but work of absent poets. One poet even came from London, Ontario to read his work.

Light refreshments were served and much appreciated by those in attendance.
It was a very pleasant afternoon.
