The Beautiful and the Damned is a monthly poetry and cabaret night organized by David Bateman and hosted by Diane Moore. I’ll be reading a series of poems called Landscape with Yukon and Unnatural Beauty. These poems, edited by Judith Rudakoff, were written during and as a response to my two trips to Whitehorse and Dawson City, Yukon, in 2010 and 2011.
They are about finding warmth and light in a foreign land, in my own country, where it was 50 degrees below with only two hours of sunlight a day.
The Beautiful and The Damned takes place on Thursday, March 8, 7-10pm at Zelda’s, 692 Yonge Street (upstairs.)
