Title: Lehr and Peerbaye at Tree Reading Series
Date: November 8, 2016
Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Description: Running since May 9, 1980, the Tree Reading Series (Tree) is one of Canada’s longest-running literary events and an essential part of Ottawa’s vibrant literary community. Tree is a non-profit organization that supports established and emerging writers from Ottawa and across Canada by offering a supportive public venue for writers to present their own work and to benefit from exposure to the work of other writers. In providing this service, Tree hopes to inspire and sustain the development of the literary community in Ottawa and to promote Ottawa as an important community for Canadian literary arts.
The evening features a workshop on Public Voice: Poetry and Social Change with Claire Farley, followed by readings by Genevieve Lehr and Soraya Peerbaye, and also includes an open mic.
