Edmonton poet Paul Pearson reads from his debut poetry book Lunatic Engine, followed by a Q&A led by Edmonton playwright and novelist Katherine Koller. Viewers will have the chance to send questions during the event.
Paul Pearson is the co-founding editor and chapbook designer for the Olive Reading Series. His poems have appeared in Descant and Event, and the anthology Writing the Land: Alberta Through Its Poets from House of Blue Skies. Raised in a mining town in the mountainous back-country of southeastern British Columbia, Paul has since relocated to Edmonton where he lives and writes with his wife and two children. Lunatic Engine is his debut collection.
