Here is the full footage from Wah’s launch of “Scree”. Amazing. Readings and comments from Jeff Derksen, Daphne Marlatt, Colin Browne, Larissa Lai, and many other very talented folks!
“The Collected Earlier Poems, 1962–1991 is the first volume of Wah’s collected works, gathering 13 out-of-print or rare books into one elegant volume published by Talonbooks in the fall of 2015 and launched at the Western Front in Vancouver, BC on October 29, 2015. This is the full-length footage from that launch. Learn more about the book, or order a copy, here: http://talonbooks.com/books/scree
