Hosted by notable Hamilton dub-poet Klyde Broox, this reading features Sacha Archer, Markus Black, Jack Blackmon, Angie C., Ellen S. Jaffe, Kelsey Knight, Laura Kooji, New Era Neisha, Jennifer Tan, and Broox himself. Kelsey Knight will also do “poems of the moment” for audience members during the break. There will be books for sale, and refreshments available at the Staircase bar/cafe. The event highlights the multi-vocality of current Canadian literary identity — you will hear poems in many different voices. $5.00 (payable at the door) is a small price to pay for this awesome event. Please join us for an evening of blossoming mid-summer poetry.
