Poetry in Conversation: Taking Poetry Off the Page
The first of three early evening events in our Poetry in Conversation strand brings together poets Claudio Pozzani and Jay MillAr. Claudio is the founder and director of the Genoa International Poetry Festival, a leading event in Italian poetry since 1995. Jay MillAr and his wife Hazel Millar are the duo behind the publishers Book*Hug, a radically optimistic Canadian independent literary press working at the forefront of contemporary book culture. They previously co-hosted the HIJ salon reading series in his home in Toronto. Come along to hear Claudio and Jay read their poetry and discuss the intersections of writing and curating poetry, reflecting on how poetry works on and off the page.
