It’s that time of year … when the clocks roll an hour forward …
Everyone prays for spring …
And people read stuff they wrote as kids.
Yes, boys and girls, Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids (GRTTWAK) is back this coming Monday at 8 p.m. And they’re moving up in the world with a brand-new (and spacious!) venue – the Gladstone Hotel Ballroom on Queen Street West.
Put on by my friend Dan Meisener, this open-mic reading series is hilarious as it is nostalgic. People read their schoolwork, diary entries, creative writing assignments – whatever, anything goes. You don’t have to read if you show up – you can just listen, if you like. It’s enjoyable for all.
And it’s free. FREE! Good Lord! What more can you ASK for?
I’m definitely going, although I won’t be reading – frankly, I don’t think I have anything that can top my previous reading of “Mrs. Reagan and Mrs. Gorbechev”.
So if you’re going to be in Toronto in a couple days, or have nothing to do, OR are tired of the same old schtick you do Monday nights after work, come on down. You won’t be sorry, I promise.
Check at my friend’s blog right here for more deets and “rules” if you’d like to read.
