Kate Braid and Ray Hsu To Visit the Robson Reading Series
April 1, 2009
Caitlin Press and Nightwood Editions are pleased to announce that poets Kate Braid and Ray Hsu will be reading at the UBC Robson Square Bookstore/Library (800 Robson Street, Vancouver) as part of the Robson Reading Series on Thursday, April 9 at 7pm. Admission is free, coffee/tea and cookies will be served, and the audience will have an opportunity to ask the authors questions about their work and writing process during a cozy conversation following the reading.
Kate Braid's A Well-Mannered Storm is a striking and masterful volume of poems that imagines a correspondence between the great Canadian pianist Glenn Gould and a fan known only as "K." Joining Kate will be bassist Clyde Reed, one of the founders of the NOW Orchestra and a Vancouver jazz scene favourite. Vancouver newcomer, poet Ray Hsu will ride the lively line between the traditional and the experimental with a reading full of surprises from his 2005 Gerald Lampert Award-winning collection, Anthropy.
