Stella's Lunch Box - 145 Lauder Avenue, Toronto

Welcome back to the Authors' Afternoon. We're starting 2019 with neighbourhood poet and artist Clara Blackwood. She will be reading some poems from her books, and will talk about her writing process and her journey as a poet. Inviting book lovers and writers to participate with questions and discussions in this relaxed meeting of creative minds.

Clara Blackwood is a poet and visual artist based in Toronto. She is the author of two poetry books, Subway Medusa (2007) and Forecast (2014), both with Guernica Editions. Her work has appeared in Canadian and international journals.

Blurb from Forecast: “Clara Blackwood’s poetry creates images and patterns that embody the texture of reality. She makes structures incarnating the complexity of consciousness and the transfiguring power of memory. Her poems present the juxtaposition of the ancient and the modern, the appearance of the sacred in the mundane, the relation of nature to mind.” — Len Gasparini
