Tonight we had the pleasure of hosting four poets: Domenica Martinello, Mary di Michele, Tess Liem, and Wendy Chin-Tanner. It was the Montreal launch of Chin-Tanner's recent publication, Anyone Will Tell You: and her first reading in Montreal!
It was a lively evening, with the poets finding the theme surfaced some of their poems in new ways. With so much shared, it was no surprise that the conversations lingered on after the readings had finished.
