Poet and one-time Vancouverite Sina Queyras’s latest collection often speaks in dialects of engineering and technology, but only to express the most heartfelt human experiences. The book’s title, M x T (Coach House), is short for “Memory x Time”, an equation she sets down to reflect the workings of grief.
These strangely lyrical elegies will be launched on Friday (March 7) as part of an evening presented by the Real Vancouver Writers’ Series and hosted by Sean Cranbury. The event, set for 8 p.m. at the Index Gallery (1305 Powell Street), will also feature poets Jillian Christmas, Elee Kraljii Gardiner, Leah Horlick, and Daniel Zomparelli.
Tickets are $5-10 (or pay what you can). RSVP on Facebook.
