TIFA presents Shani Mootoo
September 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
TIFA presents a Poetry Reading, with Shani Mootoo (author of Cane | Fire) & Pamela Mordecai.
Find your poetry fix at our Stage in the Park and hear two of Canada’s best poets with Shani Mootoo and Pamela Mordecai readings from their poetry collections.
Mootoo’s Cane | Fire is a memoir in verse, following the narrator’s personal journey from Ireland to San Fernando to Canada, elevating the story with the author’s own artwork.
Mordecai’s de book of Joseph, the third book in her epic trilogy based on characters and stories from the Bible pays tribute to her Jamaican culture and the vernacular.
This is a free outdoor event.
