The Corner Brook portion of the March Hare is always the biggest party. Over three days there are eight events that bring various artists together to celebrate music and words: high school students, established writers, emerging writers, university students, children, book lovers and readers, there really is something for everyone. Because yesterday was International Women’s Day, Beth Follett dedicated her reading to the youngest woman in the audience and went on to read the first few pages of her novel Tell it Slant. Another highlight was hearing Michael Crummey read from Under the Keel, his new collection of poetry, that was just released this week. I believe the Hare was the first place to sell copies. The literary fun continues tonight with the biggest event of the week, Pittman’s Fancy, named after one of the founding fathers of the Hare, Al Pittman.

  1. Are you by any chance the Rex Brown who took a 3rd-year seminar in the history of science & technology at Memorial U. of Newfoundland in 1966-7?

      • Hi Kerricull,

        Thank you for responding – do you have the March Hare website email address? I’ve tried both March-Hare.com, & another listed when I searched for “March Hare website”. The first wasn’t even recognized, so was never sent – the second came back as “undeliverable”.
