Richard Olafson, Manolis  and Ilya Tourtidis at Poetry Night in White Rock, April 2010.  Poetry Night presented six readers, and these are the other three; Eduardo Pinto, Apryl Leaf, and Ben Nuttall-Smith. It was a well attended event with food and drinks, poetry and a great time.  And books were sure sold!
