Dead Poets Reading Series: September

September 10, 2017 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This special reading will feature, among others, the work of three poets of vital importance to the BC writing community, all of whom we lost in 2015.

The poet lineup:

  • Peter Culley (1958 – 2015), read by Weldon Hunter
  • Elise Partridge (1958 – 2015), read by Barbara Nickel
  • Jamie Reid (1941 – 2015), read by Wayde Compton
  • Kabir (1398? – 1448?), read by Kate Braid
  • Paul Valéry (1871 – 1945), read by Alban Goulden

The reading will be hosted in the Alice MacKay Room, which is located one floor below the entry concourse. Attendance is free. We start more-or-less on time, so come early to make sure you don’t miss out!

After-Reception: Join us after the reading in the Alma VanDusen and Peter Kaye rooms, across the hall from the Alice MacKay room, for food and drinks. Books by some of the authors we’re celebrating will be available for sale.
