Interview: Your David, My Carpenter
Blood is Blood by Farkas and Souaid, the power couple of Quebec poetry, is the subject of a CBC radio documentary, airing Friday and Sunday on Living Out Loud. It has also been selected for for inclusion in the Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin, Germany, October 18-21. The poets will be heading out there for the screening, as it is also nominated for a prize in the “Tolerance” Competition. An impressive splash for a poem.

The two presented Blood is Blood on-stage at the recent launch of the book and video at Casa del Popolo on St. Laurent Boulevard.
