Enter the Conversation: Dear Tomato

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2015
7 PM – 8:30 PM, SAINT JAMES

Author Carol-Ann Hoyte, editor of Dear Tomato: An International Crop of Food and Agriculture Poems (CreateSpace Independent Publishing, 2015), and urban farmer Karen Washington join The Very Reverend James A. Kowalski, Dean of the Cathedral, for an evening of conversation about food as inspiration. The food poetry featured in Dear Tomato, drawing on poetic and food traditions as diverse as its 34 contributors, and The Value of Food will serve as the basis conversation on art, poetry, and community engagement as ways to encourage the public to find innovative solutions to the food issues that face our planet.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the conversation.

Carol-Ann Hoyte is a children’s poet from Montreal. Her poems for children have been published primarily in Australia and the United States. She is the creator and editor of two international poetry anthologies for children: Dear Tomato: An International Crop of Food and Agriculture Poems and the award-winning And the Crowd Goes Wild!: A Global Gathering of Sports Poems. Carol-Ann loves riddle poems, limericks, and novels in verse. When not working as an assistant librarian at a boys’ private school, she keeps busy taking care of her favourite boy of all—her son.

This evening of conversation is part of The Value of Food: Sustaining a Green Planet.
