Sue Sinclair read at the Bryant Park Reading Room “Word For Word” poetry series with six other Canadian poets, including: Ken Babstock, Nick Thran, Matthew Tierney, A.F. Moritz, and Molly Peacock. As guest blogger for the Bryant Park Blog, Anne Lovering reviewed the States-side reading with an enthusiasm for Sinclair’s and the other poets’ experimentation with letters, words, phrases, and ideas; it is exactly the sort of reaction that we hope poetry continues to inspire on our own home court. To read the review, just follow your literary convictions: http://blog.bryantpark.org/2010/08/word-for-word-poetry-blogs_24.html

Sue Sinclair read “Cherry Trees,” a poem which will be published in Tightrope Books’ Best Canadian Poetry in English 2010 anthology, and will be launching at the Vancouver Writer’s Festival on October 23 and in Toronto on October 28. It will be available for purchase on our website shortly.
