Susan Musgrave has been labelled everything from eco-feminist to anti-feminist, from stand-up comedian to poet of doom and gloom, from social and political commentator to wild sea-witch of Canada's northwest coast. Her latest book of poetry is Origami Dove (2011). A new novel, Given, and a book for children, Kiss, Tickle, Cuddle, Hug, were published in 2012. She has published over twenty-five books and has received awards in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, personal essay, children's writing and for her work as an editor. The reading is free and all are welcome. We are grateful for the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and St Jerome's University.
