Dear friends, 

You are formally invited to join us at Toronto’s Knife Fork Book (Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street) on March 6, 2020, for a reading by recent Not Your Best contributor Cam Scott––whom Jonathan Ball calls a “Poetry Punk“––alongside award-winning Hamilton writer Benjamin Robinson and Toronto-based writer and community organizer Vannessa Barnier. Readings will commence shortly after 7 pm. The night will be hosted by yours truly.  We’ll likely continue to a nearby bar afterward the reading for sips and bites. More details below. I hope to see you there. – Eric Schmaltz, Host
