WAM Jan 19-20 Carmine Starnino
Acclaimed poet Carmine Starnino, author of four collections of poems, has won the A.M. Klein Award for poetry - twice! -, the Canadian Authors Associate Prize and been nominated for the Governor General's award. He is also a critic and an editor - he edited The New Canon: An Anthology of Canadian Poetry, and his most recent book is a collection of essays and reviews of contemporary poetry. He is in the province this weekend taking part in the Sparks Literary Festival, wearing all the hats he owns. Tomorrow he will read some of his work.
Carmine Starnino joins me in the studio this morning, welcome to the Weekend Arts Magazine.
