55 years ago, on this exact date of November 22, a reading by bpNichol and Lionel Kearns took place at Concordia (what was then Sir George Williams University). That reading was recorded and that recording is now part of SpokenWeb’s SGW Poetry Series Collection. On November 22, this recording will be played as a Ghost Reading.
SpokenWeb Listening Practices return to an in-person format! As collective listenings, Listening Practices encourage listeners to reflect upon how they are listening. Join us to listen to a Gwendolyn MacEwen vinyl recording in this Listening Practice held in Dr. McLeod’s Contemporary Canadian Poetry class. All are welcome.
For this Virtual Ghost Reading, we will collectively listen to excerpts from the recording of Canadian poet Margaret Avison’s reading from her book The Winter Sun, and we will listen on the same day that the reading took place in Montreal on Wednesday January 27, 1967.
