City of Windsor Poet Laureate Marty Gervais is hosting five poets from across Ontario this week.

The guest poets include John B. Lee (Brantford), Anna Yin (Mississauga), Debbie Okun Hill (Sarnia), Roger Nash (Sudbury), and Terry Burns (Owen Sound) will take part in a number of events including literary readings in area schools and at the University of Windsor.

The highlight of the week will be an intimate evening of poetry reading and discussion at Willistead Manor on Thursday, November 12th from 7pm to 9pm.

In addition to public readings and discussion, there will be book signings and sales, literary giveaways, and Poetry-On-Demand with Windsor poet and published author Vanessa Shields. Marty Gervais will read from “Touch the Darkness” a new collection of poems written since he became Windsor’s Poet Laureate.

The event is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
