An Evening of Poetry with Tanis MacDonald and Moez Surani

Words Worth Books presents an evening of poetry with Tanis MacDonald and Moez Surani on Tuesday, October 22.

Mobile by Tanis MacDonald is an uncivil feminist reboot of Dennis Lee’s Civil Elegies and Other Poems; an urban lament about female citizenship and settler culpability; an homage to working and walking women in a love/hate relationship with Toronto, its rivers and creeks, its sidewalks and parks, its history, misogyny and violence.

Are the Rivers in Your Poems Real by Moez Surani uses conceptual critiques of public discourse and experimental social cartographies, as well as lyrics of intimacy, to defy prescribed ways of being. This is an act of resistance against dangerous and domineering narratives, and the power they inscribe.

In-store free event. All are welcome.
