Merry-Go-Day is one of my favourite book of poems because it was inspired by the sights, smells, tastes, sounds and energy of a day at The EX - otherwise known as The Fredericton Exhibition where my children and I went every year. The book is now out of print but there is a tape! So keep checking the Fitchcast podcast.
