Public Reading Series

December 9, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for an Inspired Word Café Reading Series event with Matt Radar in the launch of his new book, Ghosthawk.

Ghosthawk is a guidebook of imagination from grasslands to star fields to the weather of the poet’s body. Where’s home in the crises of ecological collapse and mortal illness? Where’s joy with constant pain, a future blurred by smoke?

Carrying these questions, Matt Rader wrote down the names of the wildflowers he met in the mountains, canyons and woodlands of his home in the Okanagan Valley. These poems are what he learned, the directions as he can best describe them.

This event is hosted and organized buy the Inspired Word Café, sponsored by the Faculty of Creative an Critical Studies. Proof of vaccination and masking is required to attend the event.

Attendance spots are limited and first come first serve.
