Write it down: fundraiser at the Fed

Hot night raises temperatures and money for Joanne Taylor.

Authors are hot-blooded creatures. And they’re also generous. On Valentine’s Day, look for a writerly named event, Raise the Heat, Raise your Voice, Raise the Fun(ds) Kitchen Party, at the Writer’s Federation (1113 Marginal, 7pm, $10 suggested minimum donation, with receipt). The money raised will help out writer Joanne Taylor who has been diagnosed with ALS.

Besides erotic desserts (yes, you can make a cake shaped like that), a silent auction and kitchen-party music-making, there will be hot readings from a rather unlikely crew: Susan Tooke, Budge Wilson, Donna Morrissey, Alf Silver, Linda Little, Sue Goyette and Ryan Turner, whose fantastic story I’ve read, and it made me blush a little.
