Toronto’s 175th Anniversary

Friday, March 6, 2009

Happy birthday, Toronto! Diaspora Dialogues has asked three spoken word poets to reflect on the city’s ongoing transformations from their personal perspectives. Please join us for the unveiling of a brand new cycle of poems by Lillian Allen, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Archer Pechawis commissioned by Diaspora Dialogues and donated to the City as a birthday present. Full reading at City Hall Library (12:00 p.m.); short excerpt at Opening Ceremonies in the City Hall rotunda (5:00 p.m.).
