Celebration of Canadian Poetry

UPDATE - September 22, 2016 - THAT'S A WRAP ! ! ! 91 WEEKS AND 357 ARTICLES - IT HAS BEEN FUN. LOTS OF ENJOYABLE READING ABOUT CANADIAN POETRY WILL REMAIN ON THE BRICK BOOKS WEBSITE. ******* In 2015 Brick Books marks a big milestone – our 40th anniversary!! Over those 40 years we are proud to have published well-known poets Michael Ondaatje, Anne Carson, Dennis Lee, Robert Kroetsch and P.K. Page. As well, we published the first books of poets Karen Solie, Julie Bruck, Adam Dickinson, Sue Sinclair, Jan Zwicky, Phil Hall, Sue Goyette and Steven Price. What better way to highlight this achievement than through a broad conversation about Canadian poetry!! Each week on our website, we will feature articles about a Canadian poet or a specific poem or a meeting with a Canadian poet. Our presenters are poets, novelists, teachers, publishers, booksellers, musicians, readers, doctors, media people, artists…. Thanks to my friend Jen Hale for the great idea. Welcome aboard!! A sneak peek in anticipation of January 1st… Week 1 included articles about Margaret Avison presented by John B. Lee, James Reaney presented by his family, Anne-Marie Turza presented by Lorna Crozier, et Célébrons la poésie – Anne Hébert présentée par André Vanasse.
