Event Description

Sometimes, reading poetry is like putting on prescription glasses after years of myopia. Suddenly everything becomes sharper. Join three master poets—Nancy Holmes, Cecily Nicholson, and Jan Zwicky, as well as Jan’s co-author, photographer Robert Moody—as they present work from their new collections. In these books, perception shifts. Humans fall into place as one form amongst all the marvels that inhabit our hurting planet. In Arborophobia, Nancy Holmes gives voice to the multitude of grasses, to saints, to the ponderosa pine. Cecily Nicholson explores complexities of Black history alongside colonial agricultural practices in Harrowings. And with a distilled freshness, Jan Zwicky and Robert Moody in Sixty-Seven Ontological Studies invite our closest attention to a favourite armchair, to snow and to light on water, to all that surrounds us.

Listen and engage in a heartfelt conversation and find out what shapes poems and artistic practice in this time of uncertainty—as we gaze on a glorious world (past, present, and future) that we humans have irrevocably changed.
