Reveille is back!

Reveille is an open mic evening of laughter and sharing as the general public and special guests read the angst-filled words they wrote as children.
Dig out that box from the attic or basement -- or maybe it's still under your old bed at your parents' place -- and get ready to read. Yes, it's awful. Yes, it's embarrasing. YES, it's funny!
The event is part of the Frye Literary Festival in Moncton, N.B., Canada.
This year's lineup of authors includes Margaret Atwood, Kenneth Oppel, Johanna Skibsrud, Sylvia Tyson, Charles Foran and many others. We often have some of the visiting authors drop into Reveille with samples of their work from their youth, but everyone is welcome to come and read, or come and laugh.
Reveille is hosted by the Moncton Chapter of the Professional Writers Association of Canada. It's set for Wednesday, April 27, 8 p.m. at the Moncton Press Club.
