Take a Deep Breath
Wednesday April 25, 2012
7:00pm - 8:30pm
10702 Jasper Avenue
Four women share brand-new books that tackle survival and its compensations in very different poetic ways. Sally Ito’s lyrics tackle the world where a child’s pull-toy is a soul on a string. Naomi MacIlwraith moves between two languages: nêhiyawêwin, the Plains Cree language, and English, âkayâsîmowin. Barbara Langhorst revisits a violent personal tragedy through startling imagery that rends even as it heals. And Heather Simeney MacLeod will share poems excavating popular culture, memory, and relationship. -- Edmonton Poetry Festival online schedule
