On Saturday, May 16, 2015, at 2 pm, the Fredericton Chapter of the Ibero-American Academy of Poetry (in collaboration with the New Brunswick Latino Association –PRESENCIA Project- and Broken Jaw Press) invite the public to participate in the ninth annual Word in the World Poetry Festival, being celebrated between May 11th and May 24th in more than 30 countries and in more than 500 cities across the world.
This year poets have been contributing pieces on the theme of “Peace” and the Fredericton event is dedicated to Eduardo Galeano (Sept. 3, 1940 –Apr. 13, 2015). The event will take place on the Bridge over the Saint John River (weather permitting) or at the Fredericton Public Library’s Wolastoq Room (Carleton Street).
Come read your favourite poem on the theme of peace and hear local poets read their poetry as well! See you there!
