The House of Lancaster hosts the grand start-up of 100TPC. We invite everyone to begin here for a pay-what-you-can breakfast with poetry, performance and a general orientation to the day’s 8 Toronto venues. The House of Lancaster is also a meet-and-greet session that offers a poetry bookshop, a reading table where poets can donate reading copies of their books for the day and a wall for posting poetry information. This is a fund-raiser event for Savards Shelter for Women, the Perth/Dupont Library and the poets.
