Nightwood poet Elizabeth Bachinsky will be reading from her poetry collection God of Missed Connections at the Saskatchewan Festival of Words this summer. The festival, which takes place in Moose Jaw, will run from July 14-17 (performance schedule TBA). If you’re going to the festival, don’t miss out on a chance to see a performance from one of Canada’s most vibrant young poets!
Written in the near absence of creative works by Ukrainian Canadians of her generation, God of Missed Connections is a breakthrough collection by one of Canada’s leading young poets. This book is profound, devastating, and draws on Ukraine’s brave and bloody history as a means to explore the author’s place in the contemporary world.
