Arc Walk Ottawa #2 : Glebe : curator/guide: rob mclennan

Arc Walks Ottawa is a series of guided walks based on poetry themes and capitalizing on the rich poetry history of Canada’s capital. Residents and visitors alike are welcome to join in on the walks to learn and revel in Ottawa’s poetry.

Join in the second walk on Friday, May 25, 2018.
This walk, (also) led by rob mclennan, will be a contemporary introduction to Ottawa’s literary history, visiting sites significant to poets of the National Capital Region such as Richard Sanger, George Johnston, Blaine Marchand, Jane Jordan, Michael Dennis, Margaret Atwood and Harry Howith, among others.

See the text of the first walk here (with photos!).

The walk will begin at 5:30PM in front the Royal Bank at Bank Street and First Avenue, and it will continue to visit sites in the Glebe. During the hour-long walk, participants will visit multiple locations where they will hear about some of Ottawa’s contemporary poetry history, and hear from a special guest poet or two (tba). Come prepared for rain or shine!

See the Facebook event for such here.
