The Cascadia Poetics Lab is proud to collaborate with the Philosophy Department of Seattle University, Open Books: A Poem Emporium, WESTAF and Poets & Writers to present poet, translator and anthologist Pierre Joris for a reading, a book signing and a special reception for Founding Supporters of the Cascadia Poetics Lab. Pierre will be in Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria, BC, talking about his Paul Celan translation project and his new book:

Always the Many, Never the One: Conversations In-between, with Florent Toniello. “Always the Many, Never the One builds upon the initial interview by Florent Toniello that took place that day to go deeper into a major Luxembourg-American poet’s reflections on literature, philosophy, and life. Throughout this book Joris develops a core concept of his thinking and writing, “in-betweenness,” using both literary examples and life anecdotes, some never shared in Joris’s vast bibliography so far.”

Friday, October 14, 7pm reading/talk at Seattle U’s Bannon Auditorium
Saturday, October 15, 3pm book signing at Open Books
Saturday, October 15, 4:30 Private Reception for Founding Supporters of the Cascadia Poetics Lab

Sunday, October 16, 6pm Reading at People’s Coop Bookstore
Tuesday, Oct 18, talk/reading at Church of Truth, 111 Superior Street, Victoria, BC

    Friday night is a memorial for a friend, so I will miss the Seattle University talk. But hope to make Saturday’s events. Wow. What a treat.
