GritLIT: Hamilton’s Readers & Writers Festival presents Hana Shafi
April 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm
GritLIT: Hamilton’s Readers & Writers Festival presents Poetry Decoded, with Hana Shafi, author of It Begins with the Body. Also with Linda Frank, Shane Neilson, and Adam Sol.
Metrophobia, or fear of poetry, is a surprisingly-common affliction, yet poetry predates written text as a form of communication. Poets Linda Frank, Shane Neilson, Hana Shafi and Adam Sol read from their own work and discuss how they approach reading a poem and why readers should not be intimidated by poetry – an art form that is central to human expression.
Hosted/moderated by John Terpstra.
Tickets: $8 – $10. Purchase tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/poetry-decoded-tickets-57442467968
