Yes, our Poet Laureate – the inimitable and beloved Russell Eponym – was named the Favorite Poet/Spoken Word Performer/Actor – Male in the Avi Choice Awards for 2013! We are not at all surprised, but – needless to say – we are extremely happy for Russell and for all who love and admire him. Russell is a singular talent and a wonderful man whose kindness and warmth are known across the grid – and the metaverse. His acumen is exceptional, his artistic gifts exquisite. Congratulations, Russell, for this well-deserved honour!
Now, Russell is on travel for the holidays! In order to continue readings at The Magic Tree Reading Spot in Ce Soir, the time has been adjusted; Russell will read and ruminate every Tuesday at 2 PM SLT. We don’t mind the change at all, because Russell‘s readings make for a fine hour indeed!
Do come and enjoy with us whenever you can, for Russell‘s Thought for the Day and choice of poetry, prose and music is always a delight. Opening with classical and other fine music – and sharing both the writings of others and his own original works – Russell keeps us in rapt attention. He brings out the guitar for a song or two as well – including some of the most beautiful guitar instrumentals you can imagine. It’s magical!
