EVENT DESCRIPTION

On April 12th, join gritLIT, the Poetry Centre, the Hamilton Youth Poets, and authors Susan Elmslie and Michael Fraser on our main stage for The Poetry Cabaret.

The Poetry Cabaret

gritLIT joins Hamilton Poetry Centre to present the 2018 Poetry Cabaret. In Museum of Kindness, Susan Elmslie tackles topics from motherhood to school shootings and PTSD in a voice that is both unflinching and gentle in its wisdom. Michael Fraser pays tribute to illustrious gures throughout black history in his energetic, empathetic collection To Greet Yourself Arriving. Treat yourself to a drink at the bar then settle in for an evening of poetry that promises to challenge, captivate and uplift. Featuring readings from members of Hamilton Youth Poets (HYP).
