Erín: Our lives have crossed in poetry and in translation for over a decade. My wish in translating your work is and was always to invite you into my Canadian poetic culture, so as to perturb it, open new challenges, demonstrate how your work is critical in my own practice of poetry and poetics.
Chus: In my view, a poet is one who ends up closely resembling what they write; as well, the poet holds onto the impossible harmony between sense and the insensate.

We are so pleased (okay, tickled pink) that our good friends at Coach House Books selected knife | fork | book to host poet LISA ROBERTSON for her March 2017 Tour stop in Toronto. We wish we could accommodate all who plan to attend Monday night, and we do have a capacity. Here’s how it will work.
Monday evening (the 20th), Rick’s Cafe will be closed and cleared out at 6PM. A line-up will form outside our storefront, 281 Augusta Avenue. At 6:15, the first 30 people in line will receive a single free ticket each for entry into the reading (mostly standing room only). Weather permitting, we’ll open the storefront window, for those outside to hear the reading.
Afterwards, there will be a book signing, so those waiting in line will be able to purchase and/or have their books signed by Lisa.
Once again, we join Coach House Books in welcoming LISA ROBERTSON, MARCH 20th at knife | fork | book. Doors 6:30 Poetry 7-ish
