"I knew I would be judged harshly if I were to reveal what I was thinking, what I was feeling, so I just dulled the edges of my existence so no one would know who I had living inside me. I became a secret to myself." Tom Wilson will be at #emwf18 to read from his captivating memoir that takes readers through his early years, his life as a musician, and most importantly, his search for the truth and his place in the world. bit.ly/2tHJmtR #canlit

Happy Poet's Day! Don't miss A.F. Moritz at #emwf18, where he will read from his collection The Sparrow, which surveys 45 years of his published poems. There are poems of mystery and imagination; of compassion and rage; of contemplation and analysis; of history and current events; and of fullness and emptiness. bit.ly/2Itp4K6 @HouseOfAnansi #canlit #poetry #poetsday
