Join us for the launch of Montreal author Sina Queyras's hotly anticipated new collection, MxT. Queyras will read from her new book and be joined by special guests Emma Healey and Katia Grubisic. Following the reading, Queyras will answer audience questions and sign books. Light refreshments will be served.
MxT, or 'Memory x Time,' is one of the formulas Queyras posits as a way to measure grief in her new book. Her poems mourn the dead by turning memories over and over like an old coin, by invoking other poets, by appropriating the language of technology, of instruction, of diagram, of electrical engineering, and of elegy itself. Devastating, cheeky, allusive, hallucinatory: MxT, published by Coach House Books, is Queyras at her most powerful.
'Poetry succeeds where science fails to measure grief in this brilliant new collection by the esteemed Queyras.' – Publishers Weekly
Queyras has been called one of the more direct and confrontational poetry critics Canada has by the Quill & Quire. And with her site Lemon Hound, she 'has provided a venue for voices – both experimental and traditional – that have frequently been marginalized by more mainstream or established publications.' On March 26, she launches a new collection of her own poetry.
