BooksShorts VIDEO: PorkBelly Futures Cure the Blues with BookShorts & Strange Duck Media Holiday Party
The Canadian Blues.
Strange Duck Media, BookShorts and PorkBelly Futures invited a hundred of their closest friends to "to cure the holiday blues with live music, contests, free stuff and other barely disguised excuses to meet fellow rejoicers." The highlight of the evening had to be PorkBelly's rendition of the blues verses written by our guests, which we have captured for your continued enjoyment, though we do not wish the winning verse on anybody.
Best of the season!

The contributions above were used in a Raffle to support PEN Canada. PEN is an association of writers and supporters formed in 1926 to defend freedom of expression and raise awareness of that right. It is one of 144 centres of International PEN in 102 countries, and uses the power of the word to assist writers around the world persecuted or exiled for the expression of their thoughts. PEN Canada relies on the generous support of money and time from Canadians from across the country. http://www.pencanada.ca/.
