Join us as we celebrate the launch of Di Brandt's new poetry collection The Sweetest Dance on Earth: New and Selected Poems (Turnstone Press). This event features a reading and a discussion of the book with Sarah Ens, followed by a book signing.
The launch will be hosted live in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers, Grant Park and also available as a simultaneous YouTube stream featuring live chat. Before arriving, please review details of how to attend physical events here at the store.
Since her internationally renowned debut collection questions i asked my mother, Di Brandt has remained curious, asking questions and pushing poetic bounds. Now for the first time, the diverse poetics of this celebrated prairie writer are showcased in one volume. From trailblazing intercultural and intergenerational engagements to revisionary explorations of gender, place and environmental consciousness, readers will get a chance to experience the breathtaking work of one of Canada’s most influential poets.
