Slow Food Saskatoon presents “Food Works: Plums in the icebox”
In celebration of National Poetry Month and this year’s theme of food, we invite you to join us for our monthly Salon: “Food Works: Plums in the icebox”, a reading of food poetry by some of Saskatchewan’s leading established and emerging poets.
Please join Slow Food Saskatoon on Sunday, April 19at 1:30 PM at The Grad Student Association Commons (GSA Commons), Emmanuel & St. Chad, 1337 College Drive [corner of Wiggins & College Drive], Saskatoon, SK, for what promises to be our liveliest Slow Food Salon thus far.
The intersection between the literary and culinary arts is sometimes tenuous, sometimes obvious. When poets consider what’s on their plate, from fiddleheads to the humble rutabaga, what ensues may be hilarious or heart-felt, bust is always tasty and thought-provoking.
Emerging and established poets from around the province – Dave Margoshes, gillian harding-russell, Brenda Niskala, Katherine Lawrence, Belinda Betker, Gerry Hill, Shelley Banks, Mitch Spray, Sara-Jane Gloutnez, Taryn Goff, dee Hobsbawn-Smith, Bernadette Wagner, Bruce Rice, Nicole Haldoupis, Dwayne Brenna, Tracy Hamon, Laura Edna Lacey, current SK Poet Laureate Judith Krause, and former Poet Laureates Glen Sorestad and Don Kerr – will read their Food Works, with a special musical “food work” by songwriter Tom Wilson. Hosted by Noelle Chorney.
Beverages, books and a special-edition hand-bound chapbook will be available for purchase. Handmade snacks will be provided.
This is a family-friendly event.
Admission by donation.
*** On a Sunday, there’s lots of parking in the pay lot immediately in front of Place Riel on-campus.
