Manolis will present readings from his latest collections of poetry ‘Vernal Equinox’ (Ekstasis Editions, 2010) and ‘Opera Bufa’ (Libros Libertad 2011). He will also read a selection of poems by legendary modern Greek poet Yannis Ritsos from the translated work titled ‘Yannis Ritsos – Poems’ by Manolis (Libros Libertad, 2010). Manolis has published over ten collections of poetry, each collection contemplating a different theme. View his published work here.

Manolis has presented his work to diverse audiences in Vancouver Lower Mainland and elsewhere in BC, Greece and Canada.

OPEN MIC will follow Manolis’s presentation, and there is an impressive line-up with Candice James, Ben Nuttel-Smith, Valerie Parks, Fauzia Rafique and Reese McBeth. So bring your poems, bring your friends and come on out to read and listen to poetry at one of the most beautiful parks in Canada!

Poetry in the Park is a summer program initiated by the Poet Laureate of New Westminster, Candice James, with the support of the Arts Council of New Westminister .
