Acclaimed Kashmiri-Canadian poet Sanna Wani discusses and reads from her highly anticipated collection of poems "My Grief, the Sun" in Central Library's Rose Garden.
In these poems, each verse is an ode and elegy. The body is the page, time is a friend, and every voice is a soul. Sharply political and frequently magical, these often-intimate poems reach for everything from Hayao Miyazaki’s 1997 film, Princess Mononoke, to German Orientalist scholarship on early Islam. (House of Anansi Press)
Sanna Wani's work has appeared in Brick, Poem-A-Day (poets.org), and Best Canadian Poetry 2020. She lives in Mississauga, Ontario, and Srinagar, Kashmir. 'My Grief, My Sun' is her first collection of poetry.
A Different Drummer Books will be onsite selling the author's works for a book signing after the talk.
