Don't ask me how to pronounce it...

... but Thursday is the third installment of Pecha Kucha, a snazzed up slideshow thingamabob put on by the Graphic Designers of Canada Winnipeg branch, to which I’m related by marriage.

It’s at the Park Theatre August 26th, starting at 8:20 (Yes, you read that right. Designers are very particular.) And it’s free. I’ve been to the other two events and they’ve been awesome – I’ve learned about the history of the Aero bar wrapper, seen pictures of some crazy public art projects and heard about a bunch of other techy stuff that I didn’t really understand in the first place, but found entertaining nonetheless.

You should come. And not just because I’ll be on stage.

I’m twisting the 20 slides for 20 seconds format for my own purposes and treating it as a poetry reading with pictures. I’ll be shamelessly promoting my new collection and it’ll be the first time I’ve read most of these poems to an audience.

Just to keep it in the family, Jeope will MC. He also made my slides. (And book cover, and interior illustrations, for that matter.) He’s good that way.
