Join us and Librairie Drawn & Quarterly as we present our fall poetry lineup at La Vitrola in Montreal.
Sina Queyras's My Ariel is a poem-by-poem engagement with Sylvia Plath's Ariel and the towering mythology surrounding it. Queyras barges into one of the iconic texts of the twentieth century, with her own family baggage in tow, exploring and exploding the cultural norms, forms, and procedures that frame and contain the lives of women.
Jeramy Dodds's Drakkar Noir is a haunting, yet hilarious depiction of a journey to and fro the furthest limits of the human experiment. A warlock of words, Dodds astonishes readers and non-readers alike.
Cheer Up, Jay Ritchie is Jay's first full-length collection of poetry. CUJR grapples with death, disappointment, love, emails – the large and small subjects of daily life. His unflagging sense of humour and aphoristic delivery create a work that is personable yet elevated, witty, and honest.
Linda Besner, author of spring 2017's Feel Happier in Nine Seconds, will be hosting.
