in an A B Series presentation
Seating commences at 7:30pm
RON SILLIMAN is an internationally renowned USA poet, editor and blogger. He has written and edited over 30 books, most recently Wharf Hypothesis from Lines Press, and has had his poetry and criticism translated into 12 languages. His long poem, Ketjak, has evolved in stages rather like nested Russian dolls: the first and innermost being collected in The Age of Huts, the second in Tjanting, the third in The Alphabet. He is now at work on Universe. His anthology, In the American Tree, published in 1986, is still the definitive anthology of language poetry, and his collection of essays, The New Sentence, has stayed in print for 25 years. Silliman’s Blog has received over 3 million visits.
Co-sponsored with the U.S. Embassy. A B Series gratefully acknowledges support from Gallery 101, City of Ottawa, Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts. Last year, the Canada Council invested $154 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Admission for this special event is free.
