We interupt the regularly scheduled rock...

. . . to give you this shamelessly un-edited press release. Michael Ondaatje, one of Canada’s most treasured writers, will be speaking about‚ The Art of Writing, Editing and Film when he delivers the Sun Life Financial Lecture at Carleton University on Tuesday, November 23. Best known as a novelist, Ondaatje's work also encompasses memoir, poetry, and film, and reveals a passion for defying conventional form. From the memoir of his childhood, Running in the Family, to his Governor-General's award-winning book of poetry, There's a Trick With a Knife I'm Learning To Do, to his classic novel, The English Patient, Michael Ondaatje casts a spell over his readers. Tuesday, November 237:00 p.m. Bell Canada Theatre Minto Centre Carleton University Note: The lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

Ondaatje gave a similar -- and facinating -- talk about editing with Walter Murch at the Hay Festival in 2002. Listen to that here.

More rock to come, but for now, I have to go play basketball.
