The League of Canadian Poets and the University of Regina Press are thrilled to announce the launch our legacy project, the Anne Szumigalski Lecture Series anthology entitled Measures of Astonishment: Poets on Poetry.
This delightful wine reception will feature many of the poets from the collection. Each will share a poem that has inspired a “measure of astonishment.” Our launch is one of the highlights of the Canadian Writers’ Summit.
The anthology includes the lectures delivered annually by some of Canada’s most revered poets — Tim Lilburn, Anne Carson, George Elliott Clarke, Margaret Atwood, Mark Abley, Don McKay, Marilyn Bowering, Anne Simpson, Glen Sorestad, Robert Currie, A.F. Moritz, Lillian Allen, and Gregory Scofield.
This book will also launch the University of Regina Press’s new Oscana Poetry and Poetics Series.
FREE EVENT. Cash bar. All are welcome.
Venue: Lakeside Terrace
