* This reading series is taking reading week off! There will be no Pivot tonight (Feb 21) so make sure to join us in March for this knockout show.
We have three authors coming from near + far to kick off the spring season – and it’s gonna be bright, folks. 💐
CARA-LYN MORGAN was born in the thick of winter on the Saskatchewan prairie. A seventh generation Metis on her mother’s side, and a first generation Canadian on her Trinidadian-born father’s side, her work often explores the parallels of colonialism existing between these distinct cultures. She graduated from the University of Victoria’s Creative Writing Program, and currently lives in the Toronto area. What Became My Grieving Ceremony is her first book-length collection and was released by Thistledown Press in 2014. Her second collection, Cartograph, explores healing through a variety of physical and emotional landscapes.
Rebecca Păpucaru’s first poetry collection The Panic Room was a finalist for the A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry (Quebec Writers Federation). Poems have appeared in ARC, The New Quarterly, The Malahat Review, The Literary Review of Canada, and EVENT, among others, as well as Canadian Ginger (Oolichan Books, 2017), I Found It at the Movies: An Anthology of Film Poems (Guernica Editions, 2014), and The Best Canadian Poetry in English.
Lesley Trites is the author of the story collection A Three-Tiered Pastel Dream (Véhicule Press, 2017). Her writing has appeared in The Los Angeles Review of Books, Maisonneuve, AFAR, carte blanche and Tupelo Quarterly. Winner of the 2016 3Macs carte blanche Prize, she lives in Montreal, where she is the associate editor of the Montreal Review of Books.
