Wine and poetry have enjoyed a rich relationship for quite some time. Some might even say it’s a poet’s muse. Describing a wine compares to writing a poem; not as easy as it would seem. For this fun Friday evening we invite you to enjoy complex flavours, distilled words, brio and bubbly. Four wild women will serve you aromatic poetry with spirit. And the price of admission includes a sample of four wines to match our fierce female poets.
Cat Kidd, performance poet who pours out a deep, astringent glass.
Kayla Czaga, a poet of very new vintage. Her work bubbles with playful language, and the occasional awfulness and humour of family.
Katherena Vermette, award-winning Metis writer, richly cultured.
Lise Gaboury-Diallo brings Francophone sparkle and warmth.
