Join us as we celebrate more than a dozen years of poetry and performance with the Olive Reading Collective at Edmonton’s favorite local record shop Permanent Records.
Come sip lemony Mediterranean libations & snack on briny ioives as you melt into spring this Tuesday April 22nd! Help us celebrate Poetry Month & the Edmonton Poetry Festival! The Olive Reading Series is Canada’s longest running poetry series featuring contemporary and experimental poetry from across Canada & around the globe.
The Olives are proud to include special guest reader Rhea Tregebov! Rhea will read from All Souls (Vehicule, 2012). Her poetry has received the Pat Lowther Award, the Malahat Review Long Poem prize, Honorable Mention for the National Magazine Awards and the Readers’ Choice Award for Poetry from Prairie Schooner. Tregebov is also the author of a historical novel, The Knife-Sharpener’s Bell. In addition to her poetry and fiction, Tregebov has also published five children’s picture books and edited numerous anthologies. She is an Associate Professor in the Creative Writing Program at UBC. See you there!
