Graduate students to join former writer-in-residence for poetry reading

Toronto poet and former UWindsor writer-in-residence Margaret Christakos will read alongside master’s students in creative writing Simina Banu, Samie Bauder, and Katerina Stavridis in a free public event Monday, November 28, at Common Ground Art Gallery.

The evening will also feature a presentation by master’s student Sam Whittaker on the poetry of Canadian innovator bp Nichol (1944-1988).

Christakos is the author of nine collections of poetry, including Excessive Love Prostheses (2002), Sooner (2005), What Stirs (2008), Welling (2010) and Multitudes (2013). She has also published a novel, Charisma (2001) and — her latest — an inter-genre memoir, Her Paraphernalia: On Motherlines, Sex/Blood/Loss & Selfies (2016). She teaches creative writing at OCAD University and the University of Toronto.
