Dionne Brand, author of the Griffin Poetry Prize-winning collection Ossuaries, returns with The Blue Clerk , a startlingly original work about the act of writing itself. Join us for a taste of the new work by a keen observer and one of today’s most accomplished poets, and a conversation with Adrian Harewood on the act and difficulty of writing, the relationship between the author and the world, and the relationship between the author and art. 

 

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

 

Presented with support from Editors Canada.
