Poetry reading: Madhur Anand (University of Guelph) "A New Index for Predicting Catastrophes"
Madhur Anand (University of Guelph) will give a public reading of poetry based on selections from her new book, "A New Index for Predicting Catastrophes" (Published in 2015 from McClelland and Stewart).

"Originating from her living room, backyard garden, university office, or the field sites in boreal or tropical forests, the poems in this debut collection by Madhur Anand compose a lyric science; they bring together order and chaos into a unified theory of predicting catastrophes, large and small. Anand is an ecologist whose poetics are sophisticated and original, and her voice is an “index,” a way of cataloguing and measuring the world and human experience. Narrating the beauty of her perceived world, the poems unabashedly embrace the scintillant language of scientific evidence as they interrogate crises of personal and global concern. The result is a poetry that is as complex as it is compassionate. Anand’s modernist intervention into “nature” poetry is a sparkling addition to poetics in Canada and beyond."
