Ken Sparling’s new novel in verse, This Poem Is a House is a meditative and magical exploration of the ways we love. On June 10th he will be reading from the book alongside his editor Derek McCormack and the book’s illustrator Wenting Li. Join them as they share this enchanting story and attempt to answer the question: If love is a house, how do we arrange the furniture?
This event will be held at Page & Panel, 789 Yonge Street. This is a licensed event and as such, entrance to Page & Panel will be limited to the Yonge Street Entrance, just north of Balzac’s Cafe, as the library entrance will be closed.
Our thanks to Coach House Books for helping set this up!
Praise for Ken Sparling:
‘Discovering Ken Sparling’s work changed everything I knew about writing. It made me realize that a novel could and should
be just that – novel, that that was the point of writing, of life. Reading his work felt like permission to be myself the way that he was his self. Reading Ken Sparling reminds you that you’re free.’
– Jonathan Goldstein
