Reading Event 8: Writers of Poetry - Thin Places

By Whistler Writers Festival (other events)

Saturday, October 13 2018 11:30 AM 1:00 PM

Billy-Ray Belcourt, Lorna Crozier, Cornelia Hoogland, and Laisha Rosnau

11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. | Fairmont Chateau Whistler | $20

With poems delicate and steely, of heartbreak and grace, these poets take us to the thin places, where the boundary between the physical world and the spiritual world is porous and profound. Poets Billy-Ray Belcourt, (This Wound is a World), Cornelia Hoogland (Trailer Park Elegy), Emily Nilson (Otolith) and Laisha Rosnau (Our Familiar Hunger), invite us to get lost, bear witness, and fall awake.

Moderator: Mary MacDonald

We regret to announce that Lorna Crozier is unable to attend the festival. Emily Nilson will be replacing her in this event.
