Canuck Poets Invade New York!

There is a brand-spanking new book called Open Field: 30 Contemporary Canadian Poets and many of the poets figured in the volume are streaming into New York right now for its launch. This is the first time an anthology of Canadian poetry has been published by an American house, the independent press Persea Books.

The Globe and Mail writes about the invasion. So great to have a Canadian cultural event in New York that doesn't include Celine Dion.
