PLEASE SAVE THE DATE – ALL ARE WELCOME !

How a Poem Moves with Illness and Disability: a Reading and Discussion with Moira MacDougall, Roxanna Bennett, and Adam Sol

 

Thursday April 23, 2020

18th Floor, Mount Sinai Auditorium

600 University Ave. , Toronto

Hosted by Allan Peterkin

Curated by Shane Neilson MD,PHD

6:30-8 pm

 

Moira, Roxanna, and Adam read from their new books as they pertains to illness and disability. Throughout the reading, Adam will move the audience through an open, non-specialized, organic method to draw connections between poems and create discussion.

Learning objectives:

— to recognize that the non-linear experience of poetry has fidelity with the chaos of the illness experience

— to encounter and practise a means of “understanding” poetry that deliberately avoids reading poem as riddle or puzzle to solve, but rather as a place to start making connections

— to understand the contribution that disabled experience can make in the discipline of medicine
