The versos that appear in Brick 90 were excerpted from the original eleven Versos that comprised the Writers’ Trust of Canada’s Annual Margaret Laurence Lecture delivered by Dionne Brand on May 25, 2012, at the Vancouver Public Library.
This Brick Podcast comes from a recording of that event provided by the Writers’ Trust of Canada. In this selection, Brand reads Verso 1, the back of a leaf.
Dionne Brand is a poet, novelist, and essayist. She teaches in the School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph.
