Their website says 693 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON.

Sounds pretty cool though, I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks, Rob-D! You're absolutely right: it IS 693 Bloor Street WEST. (I'd just cut-and-paste from the Facebook listing, which my brother-in-law David put up; I've let him know to fix it there, too.) Many thanks!

Stanley Kunitz, was Poet Laureate of the United States. He was born in my adopted hometown of Worcester, MA in 1905.

How about streaming it for people somewhere in the world? I think it would be so amazing to take part in that event simply watching and listening everything going on! It is just an idea... from Malaga, Spain.
