The University of New Brunswick invites you to a literary reading by acclaimed poet Billy-Ray Belcourt at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in Carleton Hall, Room 139, on the Fredericton Campus.
Billy-Ray Belcourt is a poet, Rhodes Scholar, and author from the Driftpile Cree Nation. Belcourt’s work upsets form and genre while addressing a variety of topics and themes, including decolonial love, grief, intimacy and queer sexuality, and the role of Indigenous women in social resistance movements.
His debut collection, This Wound is a World, won the 2108 Griffin Poetry Prize and was nominated for the Governor General’s Award for English Language Poetry, as well as numerous other awards. Part manifesto, part memoir, This Wound is a World is an invitation to “cut a hole in the sky to world inside.”
This event is free and open to the public.
