“Please join John Mikhail Asfour at Historic Joy Kogawa House on Tuesday, April 17, 7:30 till 9:00pm, for readings from his poetry collection, Blindfold. John Asfour served as our inaugural writer-in-residence in 2009, and during his three-month residency he completed this moving collection of poems on the distance surrounding disability. The poems were published in 2011 by McGill-Queens University Press and were recently selected to tour North America for the Association of American University Presses Book, Jacket, and Journal Show.”
