Coming Up September 13: How I Read My Summer Vacation

Happy September from Editors Kingston!

We are gearing up for another great year.

September Gathering

The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel—
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.

–John Updike, “September”

Ellie Barton with a little light summer reading

Our usual second-Wednesday-of-the-month get-togethers resume on Wednesday, September 13, with the theme “How I Read My Summer Vacation.” In an homage to “new books, erasers, chalk, and such,” we’ll be asking you to tell us about a favourite book you read this summer. Better yet, two books: one a pleasure read and one an editing- or business-related read. If you can, bring the actual book(s) for show and tell!

You can talk instead about an article, a blog post—or a tweet :-p

We meet at the usual place and time:

Ongwanada Resource Centre, 191 Portsmouth Avenue

7 to 9 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30)

Light refreshments

Both Editors Canada members and non-members welcome
