Event Description

Cassidy McFadzean was born in Regina, graduated from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and currently lives in Toronto. Her debut collection Hacker Packer (McClelland & Stewart 2015) won two Saskatchewan Book Awards and was a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. Drolleries (M&S 2019) is her second book.

Pamela Porter is the author of 14 published books—10 volumes of poetry and four books for children and young adults, including two novels in verse. Her work has earned more than a dozen provincial, national, and international awards. Her novel in verse, The Crazy Man, won the 2005 Governor General's Award, the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year Award for Children, the TD Canadian Children's Literature Award, the Texas Institute of Letters Young Adult Book Award, and other prizes. Pamela lives near Sidney, BC with her family and a menagerie of rescued horses, dogs, and cats.

The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. Between 6:45 and 7:00, put your name in the hat to read at open mic. Planet Earth Poetry acknowledges with respect that we read and write on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
