The fourth and final evening in the series, Lost Launches, takes place at 7pm, June 28, 2022, at the Art Bar (Clinton’s, 693 Bloor W, Toronto). In my role as Toronto’s Poet Laureate, I have been proud to help launch books of poetry whose proper entrance into the world was stymied by the Covid-19 crisis.
