Date/Time: Sun Mar 17, 2019, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

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


The next Dead Poets reading features booksellers from across Vancouver! It will feature:

Richard Wagamese (1955-2017), read by Hilary Atleo (of Iron Dog Books)
Sergei Yesenin (1895 – 1925), read by Duncan Parizeau (of Book Warehouse)
Gottfried Benn (1886 – 1958), read by Michael Young (of Massy Books)
Kate Barnes (1932 – 2013), read by Kurt Trzcinski

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”.
Attendance is free. We start more-or-less on time, so come early to make sure you don’t miss out. The reading will be hosted in the Montalbano Family Theatre, a brand new theatre space on the library’s 8th floor (learn more about our venue here).
