46 Pure Poetry
Friday, October 25, 2013 - 10:00am - 11:30am
$17 / $8.50 for school groups
Join six of Canada’s poets this afternoon and be amazed as they render lyrical everything from the trajectory of a sexually charged affair to the gritty world of hard labour on the Alberta oil fields. Kevan Anthony Cameron, aka Scruffmouth, veteran of the North American poetry slam scene, joins Sarah de Leeuw and Stephen Collis, both recipients of the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. Michael Crummey’s Under the Keel is his first poetry collection in a decade. Mathew Henderson’s hard-hitting debut The Lease has garnered ecstatic reviews, and filmmaker Ann Shin pushes poetry into new territory with The Family China. This is a celebration of poetry that is fresh and startling— and doesn’t waste a word.
Tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
