My friend Jennifer had offered me a ride but did not have the room for three other people. Another friend had indicated that he might come so I declined the offer so that we all could go together. As it turned out, he did not come so the ladies and I took the scenic tour to Dundas.
I liked the way the Carnegie Gallery had set up our reading corner - it was very cozy and I could hear a little better as it was more in an enclosed place. Carnegie Gallery has beautiful object d'art, jewellery, paintings, pottery all on sale.

Our Master of Ceremonies was George Down who is the Editor in Chief. He gave the assembled audience a run down on how the poetry is judged by the judges. He has the final say. Tower gets poetry from all over the world. George did a very able job of introducing each poet and gave a brief bio for each person.

The Sarnia group were invited to read several poems as they had travelled so far to come and join us.

Two other poets read their work but unfortunately, no pictures are available at this time.
All in all, a lovely event and well attended. Carnegie Gallery is a beautiful spot to hold a book launch.
Thanks for dropping by and have a good day.
