CANCELLED :: June 22 at the ANZA :: The Poetry Comeback, featuring Annharte


[ Due to events beyond our control, we have been obliged to CANCEL this event. ]

Here at New Star Books we’re happy & excited to announce our first post-pandemic literary event, a six- or seven-poet group reading at the fabled ANZA Club, headlined by Annharte, whose new book Miskwagoode  launches a few days earlier at Massy Arts. Confirmed readers so far also include Roger Farr, Louis Cabri, and Mercedes Eng.

By “post-pandemic” we mean the onset of the pandemic, not that we imagine it’s over.  The ANZA Club is a pretty big room for even a group poetry event, so there should be enough space for you to keep your distance in, and plenty of empty seats in the back for the socially different.  Admission is FREE (though the fabled ANZA bar is not) and the program commences ca. 7 p.m. The ANZA Club finds itself at 3 West 8th Avenue, at Ontario St.

Some of our authors won’t be able to attend, but we also want to use the occasion to honour new books by Sharon Thesen and Janet Gallant, George Bowering, Gary Barwin and Tom Prime, and Gustave Morin. Their books will also be available at the ANZA.
