Poetry Reading: The Artists of Crow County

Thu 27 July

Canadian Author Kara Ghobhainn Smith will read excerpts from her 2017 collection of poetry, The Artists of Crow County. The poems within depict creative lives in Chatham-Kent, Canada and Mâlain, France. Two of the poems were shortlisted for the 2016 Walrus Poetry Prize, and the Polar Expressions Poetry Prize.

“The Artists of Crow County is a truly beautiful book simply because each poem evolved out of the art work of one of Canada’s visual artists, and those national artists each lent images of their paintings to the text. What the reader experiences is a rich meal of words, art, and graphics throughout the pages.”- Kara Ghobhainn Smith
