John Freeman at The Vancouver Writer’s Fest
October 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT$25
John Freeman reads and discusses poetry with a panel of five poets moderated by Aislinn Hunter. From the Organizers:
Join five poets at the height of their prowess as they share works from their new collections and speak to the urgency of poetry in today’s world. Amidst such turmoil, art is increasingly important. Poems reclaim the power of words and the grace of ideas to shape renewal and hope. Gather strength for a world on the edge with John Freeman (Wind, Trees), Otoniya Okot Bitek (A is for Acholi), Gillian Jerome (Nevertheless: Walking Poems), Brendan McLeod (Friends Without Bodies), and Cecily Nicholson (Harrowings). This will be an event of discovery—of new poets, of ways of seeing the world—and succor, with some of the most exciting, compassionate minds in poetry. Moderated by Aislinn Hunter.
