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.
