Cameron Anstee reads with Casteels, Miscione + Papaxanthos in Ottawa, August 10, 2013

above/ground press author Cameron Anstee reads in Ottawa at Raw Sugar Cafe [see the facebook event here], lovingly hosted by Michael e. Casteels. As the event reads:
On Saturday, August 10, Raw Sugar (692 Somerset St. W.) will be hosting an afternoon of poetry and fiction. There will be books for sale and writers to point at and say “Hey, do I know you?” or “My brother’s a writer!” or “I like your use of semi-colons” or “Do you know where I can find the nearest pub? I thought there’d be wrestling here tonight.”

BUT SERIOUSLY: It'll be a great afternoon of literature and we hope all of you can come. Bring a friend or two -- the more the merrier!

Cameron Anstee lives and writes in Ottawa ON where he runs Apt. 9 Press and is pursuing a PhD in English Literature at the University of Ottawa.
