A poetry reading/performance by Lucas Crawford, winner of the prestigious 2015 Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry. A trans/queer performance artist and professor at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Crawford will read from “Sideshow Concessions”. A themed collection focusing on the circus-like bodies and lived experiences of a narrator navigating both his rural past and urban present, “Sideshow Concessions” is the unofficial story of someone who is both a bearded lady and the fattest man in the world. Crawford will be followed by presentations from local poets & spoken word artists
Join us on November 9 from 7-9pm at Doktor Luke’s Coffee House, 54 Prince Street, Sydney.
