Stan Rogal at Grey Borders

After WordsStan Rogal will be reading from his work on October 24th at the Niagra Artists Centre. The reading will be part of the Grey Borders Reading Series,  and will include performances by Karen Enns and Stevie Howell.

Stan Rogal was born in Vancouver and has resided in Toronto for 25 years. His work has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies in Canada, the US and Europe, some in translation. He has published 19 books, including four novels, four story and 11 poetry collections. He is also a produced playwright and the artistic director of Bulletproof Theatre.

The idea for the collection After Words, Stan Rogal’s latest collection of poetry, was to offer a tip of the hat to people whose lives and/or works have influenced him. Each piece is forwarded by a short background story as well as an epigram which provides some descriptive entry and flavour. The key was to construct these pieces in the author’s own style and voice and not fall into simple mimicry. Many names have been encrypted into the pieces as fractured homonyms, a sort of pun for the astute reader.

When: 7pm October 24, 2014

Where: 354 Paul St, St Catherines.

After Words is available on the Guernica website at: http://www.guernicaeditions.com/title/9781550718614
