Join us on Thursday, May 18th at 7:00 pm for a poetry reading with the wonderful Alex Dimitrov coming from New York, and Robin Richardson, coming from Toronto, to perform at D+Q alongside Montrealers Alex Manley and Lauren Turner.
Alex Dimitrov’s new collection, Together and by Ourselves, has been described as “truth-telling, raw, fierce with feeling,” which also kind of seems like a good description of all four poets we’ll have on stage.
~ALEX DIMITROV~ is the author of Together and by Ourselves (Copper Canyon Press, 2017) and Begging for It (Four Way Books, 2013). He is the recipient of the Stanley Kunitz Prize from the American Poetry Review and a Pushcart Prize. Shout-out to his beautiful Twitter project with Dorothea Lasky, @poetastrologers.
~ROBIN RICHARDSON~ is the author of two full-length collections of poetry and the Editor-in-Chief of the Minola Review, a journal of women’s arts & letters. Her forthcoming poetry collection, Sit How You Want, will be published next year by Véhicule Press.
~ALEX MANLEY~ is the author of We Are All Just Plants and Animals (Metatron, 2016). He is left-handed and has lived in Montreal his entire life.
~LAUREN TURNER~ is a Montreal-based poet and a recent graduate of Concordia's MA program in Creative Writing. Her work has previously appeared in Geist, Arc Magazine and many other publications.
