Elizabeth Bachinsky Begins Fall Touring Season

Posted: September 18, 2009

Elizbeth Bachinsky, author of God of Missed Connections, has a busy fall touring schedule this year with readings throughout western Canada. Some highlights include:

A reading with poet Susan Telfer at the Rhizome Cafe in Vancouver BC, September 20 at 6:00pm.
A reading at Word On The Street in Vancouver BC, September 27 at 11:20am at the Poetry Tent.
A reading at Thin Air: Winnipeg International Writers Festival, September 22 at 2:30pm and 8 pm.

A reading at WordFest: Banff-Calgary International Writers Festival in Banff AB, October 15 at 9:30pm and October 17 at 2:30pm.
A reading at Vancouver International Writers Festival in Vancouver BC, as part of the Poetry Bash on October 24 at 8pm.

Elizabeth Bachinsky is the author of Curio and Home of Sudden Service, which was nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award for poetry in 2006. Her work has appeared in literary journals, anthologies and on film in Canada, the US, and abroad and has been translated into French and Chinese. She lives in Vancouver, BC.

Written in the near absence of creative works by Ukrainian- Canadians of her generation, God of Missed Connections is a breakthrough collection by one of Canada’s leading young poets. This book is profound, devastating, and draws on Ukraine’s brave and bloody history as a means to explore the author’s place in the contemporary world.
