Just one week from this Wednesday, Montreal author and literary critic Sina Queyras is launching her anticipated new poetry collection, MxT, on Wednesday, March 26 at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard O.).
‘Poetry succeeds where science fails to measure grief in this brilliant new collection by the esteemed Queyras,’ says Publishers Weekly. MxT is already one of the spring’s most talked about Canadian poetry collections, and it’s not even in stores yet. You can find Queyras on the cover of the Quill & Quire this month, talking with Adam Sol about the state of Canadian poetry, and inside, you can find a review that praises ‘Queyras’s range and virtuosity.’
MxT, or ‘Memory x Time,’ is a book that delves into grief: poems mourn the dead by turning memories over and over like an old coin, by invoking other poets, by appropriating the language of technology, of instruction, of diagram, of electrical engineering, and of elegy itself.
Queyras will read from her new book, MxT, and be joined by fellow Montreal poets Emma Healey (Begin with the End in Mind) and Katia Grubisic (What if red ran out). Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
