The evening, says Highgate-born author John B. Lee, is world class event. The line-up includes Authors John B. Lee, Poet Laureate for Brantford and for Norfolk, Marty Gervais, Poet Laureate for Windsor Sydney Lea, Poet Laureate for Vermont Douglas Glover, winner of a Governor General’s Award for fiction Musicians Ian Bell, Canadian folk musician, composer, singer-songwriter and recipient of a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal Michael Schatte, Chatham-born guitarist / writer whose lyrics have been published in a recent poetry anthology. All this in the warm acoustics of the historic former Highgate United Church, rebuilt in 1917. Audience members will have a chance to meet the authors and musicians – and it is hoped they will bring some of their publications for a book and CD signing.
