Book event with Brian Francis at the 519

It went SO well.  I love Brian Francis and READ Natural Order, it is the best book ever!!!

During the events some things came up:

- comparisons were made of Natural Order to Margaret Lawrence's The Stone Angel. Brian said it did help inspire him but after writing Natural Order he went back and re-read The Stone Angel and the differences were still there.

- I asked Brian for books that he liked that I could read.  He commended The Love of a Good Woman and Too Much Happiness, both by Alice Munroe and Naked by David Sedaris.

- I asked Brian where I could find any other story he'd ever written ever.  He said he had a short story called "The Big Bang" in the book "Best Canadian Stories - 2007".
