What if the work is just as closed as it looks? What if it just happens to be arranged in words? What if I feel dumb too? And it’s kinda fun?
New KFB readers group, led by poet DAVID BRADFORD, tackles the ‘difficult stuff’ of poetry, slowly.
“For all that work we’ve been unsure how to get inside of: we’re gonna read it slowly till something happens. Come loiter out loud in the stacks with us.”
SLO-PO will meet monthly, on a Friday evening, in a casual ‘living room’ setting at the front of the shop, pulling works from the shelves to read aloud.
UPDATE: NEXT MEETING FRIDAY JANUARY 12TH 7:30PM READING JERICHO BROWN THE NEW TESTAMENT (Copper Canyon Press).
David Bradford is a poet and MFA candidate at the University of Guelph. He is the author of Nell Zink Is Damn Free (Blank Cheque Press, 2017) and Call Out (Knife|Fork|Book, 2017). He splits his time between Montreal and Toronto.
NOTE: We’d like to treat it as a ‘drop-in,’ but space is limited. If interested, give us a shout so we can plan accordingly. RE: SLO-PO firstname.lastname@example.org
