I discovered today that my review of poet Raymond Souster’s last book, Come Rain, Come Shine, has been quoted on the League of Canadian Poets site. Donna Dunlop, Ray’s editor, wrote a while ago to ask permission, so it’s nice to see the page published.

John and Donna were among those who spoke at the ceremony naming the “Souster Steps” in “Lollipop Park” in 2014. That’s when I took their photos. They also made possible a memorable visit with Raymond Souster, not long before his death. He was an artist … the real deal.
