Join us for readings and discussion presented by the Oakville Literary Alliance Ages 19+.

Everyone is welcome to these monthly sessions to share their writing or just to listen. Poets and prose writers range from nationally recognized to first-time writers.

Scheduled Speakers: A. F. Moritz

I am delighted to be hosting Toronto's Poet Laureate, A. F. Moritz: A. F. Moritz has written more than twenty books of poetry, most recently, The Sparrow (2018) and As Far As You Know (2020). In 2019, Moritz was named the sixth Poet Laureate of Toronto, a position he will hold for four years. He also serves as the Goldring Professor of the Arts and Society at Victoria University at the University of Toronto. Moritz has received the Guggenheim Fellowship, inclusion in the Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets, the Award in Literature of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, and the Ingram Merrill Fellowship. He is a three-time nominee for the Governor General’s Award for English-language poetry (Rest on the Flight into Egypt, The Sentinel, and The New Measures). He was the winner of the ReLit Award for poetry in 2005 for Night Street Repairs. And his collection, The Sentinel, a Globe and Mail Top 100 of the Year, won the 2009 Griffin Poetry Prize.

Moritz has also translated the work of Spanish-language poets Ludwig Zeller and Gilberto Meza, most often in collaboration with his wife, Theresa Moritz. The two have also collaborated on several works of non-fiction, including biographies of Stephen Leacock and Emma Goldman.

Find him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
