If you’re in the city of Toronto, an incredible evening of poetry is coming your way on May 9th at 7:00 p.m. R.Kolewe and Otoniya J. Okot Bitek are launching their new poetry collections at Flying Books on College Street!
A Net of Momentary Sapphire by R. Kolewe offers three closely related poetic sequences, rearrangements of a poignant and repeating source text, weaving and unweaving an awe-inducing lyric spell.
Song & Dread by Otoniya J. Okot Bitek is a powerful reflection on the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic examining the ways in which structural inequalities are exacerbated in extraordinary times, and the ease with which the strange can slip into the quotidian without much notice.
More information on the launch is available here. Don’t miss this launch, it’s going to steal your breath away!
