Place: People’s Co-op Bookstore
1391 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, British Columbia
Time: 7pm
No Charge























Join musician/playwright/storyteller Kempton Dexter for the launch of his first collection of short stories, "Mrs. Ceperly's Garden and Other Plots" at Commercial Drive's People's Coop Bookstore.

What people are saying about the book:

In these pages you will read of sex and death and their dance partners love and life set to an Elmore Leonard like libidinous strum and you will laugh at a little devil with gas. Kempton Dexter works the darkness to let a little light shine in.
- Grant Shilling, writer, journalist, visual artist, and author of The Cedar Surf


Dexter’s “plots” are more than points in the passage of time. With each plot are interactions often deemed to rude for contemporary narrative literature. If this was all he did, they might be, but they are not. Dexter's ability to...

Literary: Local Writer Madelaine Standing Takes ‘Heaven In The Meat Packing District’ To The Worldwide Public Audience on Kindle Amazon



Beginning October 21st 2012 writer Madelaine Standing will join the likes of Margaret Atwood, James Rollins, and Mr. Kurt Vonnegut, with the release of her debut novel ‘Heaven In The Meat Packing District.’ These writers share a passion for bringing cutting-edge insights centered around the world’s political, and environmental, affairs. Just as Einstein said, ‘My understanding of the fundamental laws of the universe did not come out of my rational mind.’ It was the work of Ms. Standing’s imagination over the last four years that brings this book to you today.

Heaven In The Meat Packing District, follows two seekers of a new way, Valencia and Kai, on their path to realizing the power within themselves. Kai and Val become the subject of science experiments within the Meat Packing District of New York City. When Sheldon, the man conducting the experiments, is threatened by the police to take the participants out from his care, Ana McKenna, an investigative reporter,...

Music: DeCroo Releases Allegheny, BC


Renowned Canadian songwriter Rodney DeCroo is launching his debut collection of poetry, Allegheny, BC(Nightwood Editions, $18.95) in Vancouver at the Little Mountain Gallery on 26 Avenue and Main St. on Saturday, September 22. Doors open at 7:45pm, show starts at 8:15. Rodney's performance will feature poems from the book, as well as his music. He will be joined by Doug Andrews, the Minimalist Jugband, Torsten Muller and Christine Rose. Tickets are $10 at the door.
Allegheny, BC is an unsettling collection in which Rodney DeCroo delivers raw footage of a childhood marred by violence, sudden uprootings and abuse. It is a vividly gritty tour through his troubled past in a small coal town, the bush of northern BC and the bars, strip clubs, seedy hotels and bleak streets of both large Canadian cities and small, isolated towns. Sobering and straightforward, the poems are fiercely potent. DeCroo's raw language and stark vision of reality will stick with you, as will “a nausea-twist in...
