Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Kim Addonizio, Hera Lindsay Bird, Dennis Lee, Eileen Myles
The point of reading poetry is not to try to “solve” its puzzles, or find the meaning, or—worst of all—analyze the meter. Poetry lovers want to feel it; all else is secondary. Enjoy an afternoon full of feeling with four fine poets as they read from their latest works. American Kim Addonizio was a finalist for the National Book Award and won a Pushcart Prize. New Zealand’s Hera Lindsay Bird is a cult figure who has gained thousands of Twitter followers since her raunchy self-titled debut collection. Dennis Lee, has been a pillar of Canada’s cultural landscape for 50 years. Similarly, Eileen Myles, has been an icon of the American poetry scene over her 40-year career. Come enjoy the feeling of poetry that doesn’t waste a word.
