Full event info here & excerpted below:

Born in Bracebridge, Ontario, Adam Dickinson has written three books of poetry and has earned numerous awards and nominations. His writing focuses on the intersection of science and poetry. For example, his third book, The Polymers, plays with the science of plastic materials and the aspects of language and culture, such as arguments and trends, that repeat like plastic molecules. He currently teaches at Brock University. @AdamwDickinson
