The Page Lectures, featuring poet Marilyn Dumont
The library is pleased to welcome Cree-Métis poet Marilyn Dumont to Stauffer Library on Oct. 18th for The Page Lectures.
The Page Lectures is an annual event hosted by the Department of English Language and Literature that brings a prominent Canadian author to give a lecture on “the page” – the act of writing, the writing life and community, or any aspect of putting words to paper the lecturer wants to explore. The Page Lectures honours the late Kingston poet and artist Joanne Page.
Marilyn Dumont is an award-winning poet whose works include: A Really Good Brown Girl (1996), green girl dreams Mountains (2001), that tongued belonging (2007), and The Pemmican Eaters (2015). Her Page Lecture is titled "Whose Voice Are You Resounding: Poetry and Prosody."
The lecture begins at 2:30 pm in the Fireplace Reading Room in Stauffer Library. Light refreshments will be served.
