gritLIT: Hamilton's Readers & Writers Festival has kicked off with two pre-festival events so far — Battle of the Books at the Hamilton Public Library (unfortunately I brilliantly forgot my camera's memory card) and Poetry with the Hamilton Poetry Centre at Homegrown Hamilton. Poetry with HPC featured one of my favourite poets — Gary Barwin — and introduced me to a new favourite — Deanna Young.
Tonight we're back at Homegrown Hamilton for gritLIT's partners event with LitLive. Things kick off at 7:30. Here's everything you need to know:
