Join us for a literary afternoon that will take the audience to the extremes of the human environment, from living aboard ships in Antarctica to the work camps of Fort McMurray.

Poets Monica Kidd and Lindsay Bird will talk about and read from their new poetry collections that explore life on the edges, drawn from their own experiences.
