I had to opportunity to attend the tribute to Louis Dudek, held at the writer's chapel of St. Jax Church in downtown Montreal. He was, of course, my father and a famous Canadian poet, writer, critic and scholar. At the event a plaque was unveiled and a selection of writers and other people gave short presentations or readings, including Michael Gnarowski the organizer, publisher and writer, Bernhard Beutler who studied and translated my father's work, and poet Stephen Morrissey who gave a great presentation and also read a new poem for the occasion.

Stephen Morrissey's
gives more detail and the beautiful text of his speech.
