Speaking Crow: Jonathan Ball
Aqua Books, 274 Garry Street (between Graham & Portage), is pleased to be the permanent home of the venerable poetry series Speaking Crow.
The Crow starts at 7:00 pm and is followed by two open-mic sets and short breaks in between. Come take up the mic and wax poetic about life, the universe and everything!
The next Speaking Crow is on Tuesday, January 4, and is featuring Johnathan Ball.
Jonathan Ball is the author of two full-length books of poetry: Ex Machina and Clockfire.
Both texts gift us with cool-hued, formal sentences that investigate many serious concerns, but in such an impertinent and thoughtful manner that the result is often mournful, uneasy, and volcanically funny.
Jonathan Ball is a former editor of Dandelion magazine. He’s currently teaching Creative Writing at both the universities of Winnipeg and Manitoba.
