Come Celebrate Irving Layton's 100th Birthday!

Canadians coast to coast are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of our greatest poets, Irving Layton, who was born on March 12, 1912. Never before in Canadian history has this country united to remember - of all things! - one of its poets. Celebrations are scheduled in all ten provinces and the Yukon and this Page serves as our communication HUB for such Events.

If you would like to organize an Event in your own community please contact Max Layton at maxlayton at rogers dot com.
