What is a public poetry? In an age of tweets and trolls, what should it even try to be? Through revision, redaction, ventriloquism, homage, self-sabotage, and outright plunder, the poems in Kevin Connolly’s Xiphoid Process interrogate the alleged futility and alleged insight of mid-life.

I have to live is a new collection ablaze with urgency and radiant inquiry from Aisha Sasha John, finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry.

Hacker Packer is the playfully inventive and invigorating debut from Cassidy McFadzean, a finalist for the CBC Poetry Prize and The Walrus Poetry Prize.

Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
