For National Poetry Month we celebrate the poet who put the country of Canada into words like no other has before or since. The boxcar riding, beer drinking, A-Frame building, booming voiced, lanky, obstreperous Al Purdy. Features live performances by Kat Cameron, Jason Lee Norman and Thomas Trofimuk as musicians and artists come together to tell the tale of Al Purdy. Glass Bookshop will be selling books in the lobby.
