Beyond Forgetting: Celebrating Al Purdy

    

Event details

Al Purdy was famous for bridging the gap between working class readers and the ivory tower of poetry, celebrating our vast and complex country all the while. Now, on the eve of what would have been his 100th birthday, fellow Canadian poets from all walks of life have come together to honour “Canada’s unofficial poet laureate.” Featuring poems by Lorna Crozier, Bruce Cockburn, Sadiqa de Meijer, and Patrick Lane (to name just a few), Beyond Forgetting is an unmissable collection for any Can Lit enthusiast.     
 
Join us for an evening with contributors Doug Beardsley, Nicholas Bradley, Linda Rogers, and Christine Smart, and special guest appearance by publisher Howard White as they remember a poetry
legend.
