Nomenclature: Dionne Brand

October 1, 2022, 1:30 PM2:30 PM EDT


Audience favourite Dionne Brand, award-winning Canadian author and Toronto’s 3rd Poet Laureate, presents her latest book, Nomenclature: New and Collected Poems. Comprised of intense new work and eight prior volumes – originally published between 1982 and 2010 – the collection captures the intimacies and disillusionments of wars and revolutions so profoundly that you’ll learn to witness the world a whole new way. Brand will take you on a journey through her imagination through temporal worlds of past, present and future. Join her, and discover first-hand why Brand is one of Canada’s most significant artists today.

Where: Fleck Dance Theatre

Dionne Brand’s collection, Ossuaries (McClelland & Stewart), won the 2011 Canadian Griffin Poetry Prize. She was also a finalist in 2003 for thirsty (McClelland & Stewart) and in 2019 for The Blue Clerk (Penguin Random House Canada).
