Save Al Purdy’s Trees!!

The Al Purdy A-Frame Association has had some unfortunate surprises in the last couple of months and it looks like our annual budget won't stretch to cover inoculating the Ash trees on the property this year and the trees likely won't make it if we don't inoculate them! In response to our financial challenge, The Al Purdy A-frame Association announces a project from Thee Hell Box Press. Hugh Barclay will be starting a chapbook of poems by Al Purdy selected by Purdy’s widow Eurithe. He only plans to print 100 numbered copies in a letterpress edition which will be signed by Mrs. Purdy so we don't think they will last too long. The book will sell for $35 with all proceeds going to the Al Purdy A-Frame Association. If you would like to reserve a copy, email Hugh at h.w.barclay@sympatico.ca and he will confirm your order and assign a copy number. Please don't send money at this time. If you wish to make a financial donation, please visit http://www.alpurdy.ca/contactdonate/ Donations over $50 will get tax receipts.
