Dane Swan Set to Wow Readers at Word on the Street

Greetings everyone!  We’re gearing up for Word on the Street this year in beautiful Queen’s Park and would love to see you there. Come by booth 306 and pick up one of our new releases, an old classic or just stop and chat about books with us! You can also take a peek at our newly redesigned First Poets series with covers by the fabulous Melanie Janisse. Later in the afternoon stop by the Vibrant Voices tent to catch accomplished spoken word artist Dane Swan read from his first poetry book, Bending the Continuum, at 4:15 PM.

The Word on the Street
Queen’s Park
Toronto, ON
11 AM – 6 PM
Sunday, September 25

The poems in Bending the Continuum are slave to no genre. Science-fiction, alternative realities, and time are fluid. Form, voice and space in this collection borrow from multiple canons. Dane’s first book is equal parts Can-lit, Harlem Renaissance, the Caribbean oral tradition known as Griotism, Roddenberry, hip-hop and dark-humour. Bending the Continuum has been published as part of Guernica’s First Poet Series, which features first full poetry collections by writers 35 and younger.
