Public Poetry Going Stateside(Apr. 2010)

The Foundation for Public Poetry/Fondation Poésie Publique is planning a trip to California to promote the “Leonard Cohen You’re Our Man” book at a reading in Los Angeles in Spring 2010. The reading and book tour will be a Canada/U.S. cooperative cultural tour. Net proceeds from this tour will go toward the Leonard Cohen Poet-In-Residence program at Westmount High School.

Our goal is to take a bus from Montreal to Los Angeles and hold readings at various locations along the way. Canadian poets who are represented in the book will travel across the continent to meet up with California poets in the book at a special L.A. reading.

In order to accomplish this goal much help is needed. We currently seek poets interested in participating, and persons willing to help with financial and logistical support.

The tour will be an opportunity for Canadian poets, for Canadian organizations wishing to promote themselves in the U.S., and for generating international cooperation and friendship.

If you have any interest in being a part of this initiative, please contact Jack at
