The Poetry of Memoir: Lorna Crozier & Madhur Anand

November 12, 2020 at 7:00pm

The Words Festival is pleased to "The Poetry of Memoir," featuring Lorna Crozier & Madhur Anand. Our host for the evening will be Vidya Natarajan.

At this year's festival, we welcome two poets who bring their lyricism to reimagine the genre of memoir. Lorna Crozier offers a deeply affecting portrait of a long partnership and a clear-eyed account of the impact of a serious illness, writing as consolation, and the enduring significance of poetry. Madhur Anand brings an experimental memoir about Partition, immigration, and generational storytelling that weaves together the poetry of memory with the science of embodied trauma using the imagined voices of the past and the vital author of the present.
