TCR Launch – George Stanley Issue

I had a great time at the launch party of the George Stanley Issue of The Capilano Review Wednesday night at the Sylvia Hotel on English Bay in Vancouver (natch).

Everyone was there – George Bowering, Jean Baird, Jamie Reid, Barry McKinnon, Colin Browne, Peter Culley, Dora FitzGerald, David Phillips, along with past and present TCR editors Pierre Coupey (founding editor in 1972), Ryan Knighton, Sharon Thesen, Jenny Penberthy and Brook Houglum (current editor). Other notables in attendance: New Star Books publisher Rolf Maurer, West Coast Line editor Michael Barnholden, Event editor Elizabeth Bachinsky and KSW co-founder Jeff Derksen. Who else have I missed? I’m sure you’ll let me know! 😉

I’ll be guest-blogging for TCR for the next couple of months. Here is my first post.

And here are some more of my pics from the night…
