Event Description

Kate Braid has written, co-written and co-edited 14 books and chapbooks of non-fiction and prize-winning poetry. Though she once worked in construction (her memoir is Journeywoman: Swinging a Hammer in a Man’s World), she now builds entirely in words. Her latest book of poems is Elemental (Caitlin Press).

John Terpstra has published ten book-length collections of poetry and many chapbooks. He has also published four prose projects, most recently The House with the Parapet Wall, winner of a Hamilton Literary Award. Terpstra has also been a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award and the RBC Taylor Prize. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario, where he works as a writer, cabinetmaker and carpenter.

The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. The evening begins at 7:30 with an open mic, followed by a featured reader(s). Planet Earth Poetry is located at Hillside Coffee and Tea, 1633 Hillside Ave (across from Bolen Books). Between 7 and 7:15, put your name in the hat to read at open mic.
