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.
From top to bottom: Rex Brown, John Ennis, Beth Follett, Holly Hogan & Allan Byrne, Mark Callanan, Daniel & Stephanie Payne, Grace Wells, and Michael Crummey.
