2nd Annual Quebecois Poetry Festival @ ODU Norfolk and Virginia Beach!
For the 2nd year in a row ODU will be hosting a Quebecois-ODU Virginia Beach and Norfolk poetry festival in conjunction with La Maison de la Poesie in Montreal. This year, Montreal is sending us 3 award-winning and legendary poets for readings and exchanges (Carole David, Denise Brassard and Paul Chanel Malenfant).
The first reading will take place at ODU Norfolk in BAL 9024 on Wednesday April 5 from 3:00-4:20; and the second will be a "Quebecois Poetry Roundtable on Poetic Voices and Exchanges" with the three Quebecois poets in dialogue with American poets Luisa Igloria, Renée Olander, M.J. Kledzik and Peter Schulman on Thursday April 6, Lecture Hall 244 from 12:30-2:00 at ODU Virginia Beach, 1881 University Drive. Guests park in Lot 3. Readings will be followed by a reception and book signing.
The poets will also be visiting local high schools in order to inspire students with the love of international poetry. All events will be free and open to the public. For more information contact Dr. Peter Schulman by email or at 757-683-3323.
