Always a Festival favourite, this year’s Poetry Bash is a star-studded event featuring six of the best. Master of contemporary mythology Anne Carson joins former Poet Laureate of Vancouver Brad Cran, Pulitzer Prize–winner Paul Muldoon and Governor General’s Literary Award–winner Anne Michaels. Newfoundland’s Michael Crummey appears with his first poetry collection in a decade. Mathew Henderson’s debut poetry collection was labelled “spare and eloquent” by the New York Times. A lineup like this is sure to please the ears and minds of language lovers who want to see and hear some of the finest poets writing today.
