We’re so excited and proud to have the Association of Book Publishers of BC launch the 2010 Poetry In Transit project at The Word On The Street Vancouver. We will have a reading for an hour in The Poetry Tent with a selection of poets and a bus on-site displaying the poetry cards. This year’s poets, as selected by the ABPBC, are:

  • John Barton | Hymn (Brick Books)
  • George Bowering | My Darling Nellie Grey (Talonbooks)
  • Kate Braid | Turning Left to the Ladies (Palimpsest Press)
  • Joe Denham | Windstorm (Nightwood Editions)
  • Daniela Elza | 4 poets (Mother Tongue Publishing)

We’re so thrilled that Evelyn Lau and Garry Gottfriedson are already scheduled to read in The Poetry Tent from these same books. Fiona Tinwei Lam is participating in the Ricepaper Magazine event and Steve Noyes is reading from his fiction book, It is Just That Your House Is So Far Away.Visit our website for Poetry Tent programming to see all that’s going on.
