Join us for a special evening of poetry as McClelland & Stewart launches new collections from poets Madhur Anand, Laurie D. Graham, Tolu Oloruntoba and Phoebe Wang. Hear the authors read a selection from their new books, then stick around as they sit down with moderator Natasha Ramoutar for a live discussion and Q&A.
Anand’s new collection, Parasitic Oscillations, interrogates the poet’s own experience of working between the arts and the sciences on the one hand and living between North American and Indian cultures on the other, while Graham’s Fast Commute takes aim at the structures that support ecological injustice and attempts new forms of expression grounded in respect for flora, fauna, water, land and air. Oloruntoba’s Each One a Furnace explores (im)migration, diasporas, transience and instability by following the behaviour, and the abundant variety, of finches, and Wang’s Waking Occupations contemplates our obligations to live in a creative, generative and revolutionary way amid a cascade of global contingencies.
