Hearing Neruda in Toronto

Imagine, a Q Space reading event on College at Borden on Friday evening, hearing a
Neruda love poem and staring at the niveous, foam-crested waves crashing
over the obsidian rocks at Isla Negra… where we go every year with
Los Parronales workshop participants, to tour of one of the three treasure-filled homes of Chilean, Nobel prize-winning poet, Pablo Neruda.
Always a satiating and enthralling experience.
Join us! The trip to Isla Negra is scheduled for
