(MONTREAL) Tightrope Books is proud to present the launch of its much-anticipated new anthology series, The Best Canadian Poetry.
Thursday, 20 November at 6:30 pm.
Paragraphe Books, 2220 avenue McGill College
Hors d’oeuvres, free admission.
From a long list of one hundred poems drawn from Canadian literary journals and magazines, this year’s guest editor, award winning poet Stephanie Bolster, has chosen fifty of the best Canadian poems published in 2007. With this anthology readers, baffled by proliferating poems and poets, can for the first time tap into the remarkable and vibrant Canadian poetry scene. Readers are invited to explore the currents and cross-currents of poetry in a distinguished volume distilled by a round robin of esteemed editorial taste.
The evening’s celebration will include readings by some of Canada’s best poets, including Susan Elmslie, Aurian Haller, Michael Lista, Craig Poile, Shane Rhodes, David Seymour, and Carmine Starnino.
