Leonard Cohen Stops Bay St.

Only someone of Leonard Cohen’s stature could stop traffic on Bay St. It also helps when you’re one of Canada’s most esteemed poets and just released a book after 22 years. The “silent one” (apparently that’s his Zen name) will be at the Bay and Bloor Indigo tomorrow at 4:00pm. They’re closing Bay St. from Bloor to Charles to accommodate the mad throngs of Cohen devotees that’ll show up.
It’s not a book signing but a tribute to Leonard and will feature performances by the Barenaked Ladies, Ron Sexsmith and Anjani.
