Lunch Poems at SFU | Kevin Spenst and Louis Cabri
Teck Gallery in SFU’s Harbour Centre Campus 515 West Hasting Street, Vancouver, BC
Kevin Spenst is the author of Jabbering with Bing Bong (Anvil Press), a coming-of-age narrative of growing up “post-Mennonite” in Vancouver’s suburb of Surrey. He’s also the author of the chapbooks Pray Goodbye (the Alfred Gustav Press), Retractable (the serif of nottingham), Happy Hollow and the Surrey Suite (self-published), What the Frag Meant (100 tetes press) and Surrey Sonnets (JackPine press). His work has recently appeared in BafterC, Poetry is Dead, and the anthology Best Canadian Poetry 2014.
Louis Cabri is toastmaster of the booklength poem Posh Lust, of the style guide Poetryworld, and of the custom rubber stamp collection The Mood Embosser. Poetry hesitates in the open between the asking, can I learn to read? and the telling wait. A scrawl of sound with social and public rhythms, inhabited, in shifting wavelengths, by psychic force. Cabri helps coordinate a summer series for Kootenay School of Writing at UNIT/PITT Projects and teaches winters at the University of Windsor.
