Title: Gernes and Nyman read at Poetry London (Ontario) Reading Series
Date: April 19, 2017
Location: London, Ontario, Canada
Description: The Poetry London Reading Series hosts monthly readings and poetry workshops in London, Ontario. The series brings Canada’s best national poets into London for readings, as well as providing a wide range of poetry-related opportunities for local writers and poetry aficionados. The series’ home is the Landon Branch Library in London’s beautiful Wortley Village.
The series was created in 2004 by poet Cornelia Hoogland in partnership with the London Public Library. The series partners with several other Ontario venues, including The Hamilton Poetry Centre, Ancaster’s Redeemer College, London’s Fanshawe College, Western University, and St. Jerome’s College in Waterloo, to provide national poets multi-stop Ontario tours. Poetry London strives to host a dynamic mix of voices, from established Canadian poets to new and local writers.
This evening’s event features readings by poets Ulrikka Gernes and John Nyman.
