Louise Bernice Halfe – Sky Dancer

The Museum of Science, Consulate General of Canada in Boston, and the Poets’ Theatre present an evening of poetry and conversation with renowned writer and Canada's 2021 – 2023 Parliamentary Poet Laureate, Louise Bernice Halfe – Sky Dancer.

For one night only, Louise takes the Museum stage for readings of her original works, inspired by her personal experiences and those of her family and community. Halfe, also known by her Cree name Sky Dancer, has received numerous awards including the League of Canadian Poets Raymond Souster Award, the High Plains Book Award, and Latner Writers’ Trust Poetry Prize. This presentation of Halfe’s work celebrates Indigenous People’s Day in the United States and prompts discussion on truth and reconciliation.

The evening will also feature readings from the City of Boston’s current Poet Laureate Porsha Olayiwola, who will also join Louise Bernice Halfe in conversation and Q&A.

Following the program, join us for a reception to meet the artists and continue the conversation.

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
