WAM June 18-19 Tom Dawe
St. John’s Days Celebrations are scheduled morning, noon and night next weekend, the 24th, 25th and 26th in the capital city. The history and culture that make St. John’s unique will be on display, and many of the events are free of charge.
Museums and churches will have special shows. There’ll be a regatta on Quidi Vidi Lake. there’ll be concerts and demonstrations and films and photo contests and oh so much more.
One event that caught my eye was Now and Then - A Celebration of St. John’s Poetry.
It’s an afternoon of poetry readings hosted and developed by the city’s poet laureate, Tom Dawe. I asked Tom how he was going to celebrate St. John’s days and St. John’s poets.
