Montreal poet, Asa Boxer, returns to the Elora Poetry Centre & Gallery for the fourth year on Sunday, July 30, at 4:00 PM to read from his series of poems about the undead: zombies, vampires, and ghouls, including the poem “Zombie Apocalypse – after Solzhenitsyn.” With mischievous humour, these poems examine cruelty, brainwashing, and just plain stupidity.

Asa Boxer’s poetry has garnered several prizes and is included in various anthologies around the world. His books are The Mechanical Bird (Signal, 2007), Skullduggery (Signal, 2011), Friar Biard’s Primer to the New World (Frog Hollow Press, 2013), and Etymologies (Anstruther Press, 2016). He is also a founder and manager of the Montreal International Poetry Prize. Asa Boxer is the son of the well-known poet Avi Boxer, who with others, such as Irving Layton, formed the poetry scene in Montreal.

 

We anticipate starting around 5.00 p.m. Drinks and finger food will be available.

Tilly Kooyman will also be performing the clarinet, accompanying Asa’s reading.
