Date/Time: Sun Sep 16, 2018, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: VPL - Central Library, 350 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC


It’s simple! Five presenters get fifteen minutes each to introduce one of their favourite dead poets and read a selection of that poet’s work. To clarify here, by “dead poet” we mean “non-living poet”, not “character from that Robin Williams movie”.

This month:

Reinaldo Arenas (1943 – 1990), read by Aidan Chafe
Pablo Neruda (1904 – 1973), read by Danny Peart
Sei Shōnagon (966 – 1017), read by Yvonne Blomer
Derek Walcott (1930 – 2017), read by Alan Hill

Readings take place from 3-5 PM on the second Sunday of every odd-numbered month (i.e. January, March, May, etc.), and are run out of the VPL’s Central Branch (Alice McKay Room), in Downtown Vancouver. There’s an intermission and good conversation to boot.

*Please note that this reading will be taking place on the 3rd Sunday of the month, not our usual 2nd Sunday*

Attendance is free. We start more-or-less on time, so come early to make sure you don’t miss out.
