A Dance of Self-Isolation- Virtual Book Launch
Saturday, March 20, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
To mark the anniversary of the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Windsor-Essex, the City of Windsor is presenting a virtual book launch for the poetry collection, ‘A Dance of Self-Isolation’ on Saturday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. Join us for an evening of poetry responding to the pandemic, and conversation about the impact of COVID-19 on our community. Hosted by AM800 CKLW’s Dan MacDonald, the host of this 1.5 hour special, which includes readings of poems from the collection and Q&A with the readers/panelists featuring Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens, Poet Laureate Mary Ann Mulhern, Poet Laureate Emeritus Marty Gervais, Youth Poet Laureate Samantha Badaoa, Councillor Jo-Anne Gignac, Commissioner of Community Development & Health Services Jelena Payne, Windsor Regional Hospital Board Chair Anthony Paniccia, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare President & CEO Janice Kaffer, and United Way Windsor-Essex County Board Chair Bev Becker. The result is a very compelling, moving commemoration of the year we’ve all been through.
