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 Avenue, Toronto
Hosted by Allan Peterkin
Curated by Shane Neilson MD,PHD
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.
— 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
