“34 Years Later” Book Launch, Readings and Music by Tom Wayman and John Lent
Tuesday, May 1st at 7:30 pm, Oxygen Art Centre
Join Tom Wayman and John Lent for “34 Years Later” an evening of readings and live music to mark the launch of a collection of Wayman’s essays and interviews, “If You’re Not Free at Work, Where are You Free: Literature and Social Change”, published by Toronto’s Guernica Editions. This evening also marks the 34th anniversary of the BC government’s shutdown of Nelson’s David Thompson University Centre.
Joining Wayman for “34 Years Later” will be John Lent on guitar accompanied by Vernon musician-educator Mark Nishihara on bass. Lent, whose musical career began as a folksinger in Nelson, is a long-time member of the Lent/Fraser/Wall blues and roots trio. He said his work with Nishihara returns him to the folk and folk-rock repertoire of his earliest days, and highlights as well more recent tunes.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at Nelson’s Oxygen Art Centre. Admission is free ($5 donation appreciated) and the event is open to the public. Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon St. (alley entrance).
