The Atwater Poetry Project is delighted to present the Finalists for the 2019 A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry – Kaie Kellough, Tess Liem, and Shannon Webb-Campbell.

The prize will be awarded at the Quebec Writers’ Federation Awards Gala on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.

Join us for a reading and presentation from three of the finest poetic voices writing in Quebec today.

Hosted by APP curator Rachel McCrum.


The event will start at 6:00 pm, is free, and everyone is welcome. Books by the poets will be for sale and there will be refreshments.

The reading will take place in the Atwater Library auditorium, which is located on the second floor, up two flights of stairs. Unfortunately, the library doesn’t have an elevator (but it’s coming!). There is a single-stall gender-neutral washroom and a multi-stall women’s washroom both next to the auditorium.

Atwater Poetry Project is committed to being a safer space and anti-oppression space. We ask all guests to be respectful and non-discriminatory toward others within the reading space and in the Library where the series is located. Violent, discriminatory or harmful behaviour will not be tolerated.

We acknowledge that this reading series takes place on unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka people in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal.

Atwater Poetry Project is made possible by the ongoing support of the Atwater Library and Computer Centre and from the Canada Council for the Arts | Conseil des arts du Canada.
