This Is Not A Reading Series and Coach House Books presents the launch of Matthew Tierney's Probably Inevitable. Tierney will talk poetry and time in an in-depth discussion with Griffin-winning poet Ken Babstock and science writer and broadcaster Claudia Hammond (both published by House of Anansi).

Perception of time, poetry and the intersection of the two (and more) await at our This Is Not A Reading Series event. Keep your eyes peeled for some on-stage time-keeping and your ears open for the time-related music mix.

Probably Inevitable is the anticipated follow-up to Tierney's Trillium Award-nominated The Hayflick Limit. These are high-energy poems, riddled with wit and legerdemain and jolted by the philosophy and science of time. Tierney’s narrators grapple with the gap between what's seen and what’s experienced, their minds tuned to one (probably) inevitable truth: the more I understand, the more I understand I’m alone.
