Dave Bidini, well known musician with the iconic Canadian band The Rheostatics and prolific writer stopped by the Millrace Room with his new book "Keon and Me: My Search for the Lost Soul of the Leafs". The event also featured the unveiling of a painting of Dave Keon by Mark Grice, a performance by the Rubber Brothers and a special audience participation hockey poem entitled "Dreams Live Forever" by Harry Posner. The event, presented in participation with BookLore, was well attended and the audience was treated to a reading from Bidini himself, in addition to anecdotes that centered around Dave's inspiration for writing his latest book.
