Location: 

The Department of English and Queen's University welcome award-winning Cree-Métis poet Marilyn Dumont to the Alan G. Green Fireplace Reading Room on the second floor of Joseph S. Stauffer Library for the Page Lecture. This year, Marilyn's talk is titled "Whose Voice Are You Resounding: Poetry and Prosody."

The Page Lectures is an annual event hosted by the Department of English Language and Literature (and this year, for the first time, being held in Stauffer Library) that brings a prominent Canadian author to give a lecture on “the page” – the act of writing, the writing life and community, or any aspect of putting words to paper the lecturer wants to explore. The Page Lectures also honours the late Kingston poet and artist Joanne Page.
