Our friends at Biblioasis Bookshop are hosting a reading and (lost) launch for a few fantastic books!
Our very own Louis Cabri will be reading from Hungry Slingshots. Cabri’s most recent collection opens up the resonating chambers of constraints imposed by poetry conventions — most noticeably in the title sequence, “Hungry Sling Shots,” which hearkens to the French 17th century civil war and the widespread use of the triolet form — to make our oldest literary genre vibrate in new ways and in unexpectedly contemporary directions.
He’ll be joining Nicole Markotic with After Beowulf, a reinvigorated rendition of the original epic, and Susan Holbrook with Ink Earl, erasure poetry in an intriguing new form, both from Coach House Books.
Wednesday October 26
1520 Wyandotte St. E
