- Poetry Map
Below are all Brick Books author readings for 2012 – sorted by author and ordered chronologically for each author.
Family, migration and personal identity are explored in Ann Shin's powerful new book, The Family China. In these poems, Ann explores how household objects and china become emblematic of domestic life.
Ann and interviewer/This Is Not A Reading Series Artistic Director Marc Glassman will meet at centre stage and smash family plates before their interview. Rest assured: their conversation won’t be polite talk about poetry! You can bring a piece of family china and break it — literally — with Ann in this no-holds-barred launch.
A veteran documentarian who has worked as an independent and at the CBC, Ann will screen a film series of people shattering their family china and talking about their lives, hopes and fears.
Film, talk, performance and poetry. Ann’s launch will have it all. It's literary, it's punk, it's William Ashley meets Sid Vicious.
