Join us IN PERSON for the official McGill-Queen’s University Press launch reading of two new poetry books, Jason Camlot’s Vlarf and John Emil Vincent’s Bitter in the Belly.

In this listening practice, guide-hosts Jason Camlot and Katherine McLeod take up the call of SpokenWeb organizational partner Blue Metropolis to conduct an event that explores the theme of hope in relation to the archival pursuits of our research network.
