Julie Berry to Deliver Workshops and Readings during Week-long Stay – October 29 to November 2

Tuesday, October 23, 2007, Peterborough

Trent University’s Bata Library and Champlain College are pleased to be jointly hosting award-winning Ontario poet Julie Berry as writer-in-residence during the week of October 29 to November 2, 2007.

Throughout her week at Trent, Ms. Berry will be involved in several activities, including:

  • Meet & Greet – Monday, October 29, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., The Ceilie, Champlain College
  • Public Poetry Reading – Tuesday, October 30, 8 p.m., Bata Library (the last half hour of the program will be devoted to readings by Trent students, staff and faculty of their favourite poems)
  • Writers' Workshop – Tuesday, October 30, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., Trent-Fleming Room, Bata Library
  • Classroom lectures and discussions

Julie Berry’s work has been described as finely-turned and constantly surprising, haunting as plainsong, throaty as the blues. Her collection worn thresholds (Brick) was published in 1995 and re-issued in 2006. Her writing has appeared in numerous journals and magazines, including Room of Ones Own, Quarry and Canadian Forum.
