A reading with Joshua Trotter and Gabe Foreman. They read from their debut collections of work, All This Could Be Yours (Biblioasis 2010) and A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People (Coach House Books 2011) (respectively). Both of these collections have been stupendous entrances into the contemporary landscape, receiving high ‘n’ apt praise for their publications.
Joshua Trotter lives and cooks in Montreal. All This Could Be Yours is his first book. He is likely to be one of the most down-to-earth poets you’ll ever meet.
Gabe Foreman was born in Thunder Bay. He's worked as a tree planter in BC, Alberta and Ontario. He’s a co-founder of littlefishcartpress, and his writing has appeared in many literary journals including Grain, Fiddlehead and Event. He placed second in CV2’s 2-day poem contest and a selection was shortlisted for the CBC Literary Awards. Currently, he lives in Montreal.
