Come out to the AvantGarden Series with readings by Erin Moure and Oana Avasilichioaei!

Erin Moure is one of Canada's most eminent and respected poets, and a translator from French, Spanish, Galician, and Portuguese. Her work operates on the edge of difficulty and acceptability, and is transgressive but aware of history. She is the author of fourteen books of poetry, has received the Governor General's Award, the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, the A.M. Klein Prize, and has been a three-time finalist for the Griffin Poetry Prize. Her recent books include Expeditions of a Chimæra (co-written with Oana Avasilichioaei), a book of essays, My Beloved Wager, and a reissue of her 1999 limited edition Pillage Laud.

Oana Avasilichioaei is a poet and translator whose work explores history, geography, public space, textual architecture, multilingualism, translation, textual and collaborative performance, and who transformed the landscape of Vancouver’s Hastings Park into an acclaimed book of poems, feria: a poempark (Wolsak & Wynn). She has created visual textworks for galleries in Montreal and Vancouver, and has performed her work in Canada, USA, Mexico and Europe. She recently collaborated with Erín Moure on Expeditions of a Chimæra (BookThug), a dialogic work exploring the boundaries between author/translator and original/copy. Her newest poetry collection is We, Beasts (Wolsak & Wynn).
