McClelland & Stewart Poetry Launch

March 30 at 7pm

Sign up/in to register for this event

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.

Get your copy of these new poetry collections from UofT Bookstore, the official bookseller for this event, here.

This event will take place virtually. Please return to this page on March 30 at 7pm ET to watch the event. A recording of the launch will be available to view for 72 hours.
