Dionne Brand, Poet Laureate

She's our smoothest poet, a brilliant gatherer of image and sound, she played one of The Men in Lisa Robertson's book length reading of the collection of the same name, she's certainly one of the Hound's favorite poets, absolutely included in Open Field, and now she's Toronto's new poet laureate. Excellent news. Go Dionne.

She's one of my favourites, too! Lucky Toronto!
