28 July 3.30 p.m.
We have a double-bill of two esteemed poets, Asa Boxer and Max Layton, both sons of poets who emerged from Montreal in the 1950’s. Asa will be reading from his new chap book Field Notes From the Undead along with some wonderful new material composed since his last visit. Tilly Kooyman will accompany parts of the reading on her clarinet. Max, eldest son of Irving Layton, will be reading from several of his works, including his latest book of poems LIKE, which has just been published by Guernica Editions. He also accompanies himself on the guitar. A short question period will follow the two readings and there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to each poet during the light supper and drinks session.
