Readings by Contemporary Canadian Writers: The Poetry and Films of Shane Book

Shane Book is an award-winning poet and film-maker, and currently Associate Professor in the Department of Writing at the University of Victoria. His first poetry collection, Ceiling of Sticks, won the Prairie Schooner Book Prize and the Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award and was a Poetry Society of America 'New American Poet' Selection. His second, Congotronic, was a Kuhl House Poets Selection, won the Archibald Lampman Award and was a finalist for the 2015 Griffin Poetry Prize. Book's first film, Dust, received numerous awards and was screened at festivals and on television around the world. His second film, Praise and Blame, will premiere in 2018.

This presentation will feature screenings of several of Book's films. He will also read from his poetry collections, offering reflections on the similarities between film and poetry, the challenges of producing different types of films, and the experience of adapting a poem to the screen.
