2pm • RADICAL READING SERIES • BUCHWALD ROOM

What’s a festival of radical words and images without a reading from the edge of the cutting edge? We’re excited to present readings from Chimwemwe Undi, Kell Hagerman, Angela Lopes.

Kell Hagerman is a poet and fiction writer who studies English at the University of Winnipeg. He is excited about intersectional equality, flourishing trans identities, artists of colour, vegetables, and performance art. Kell is interested in speculative elements in literature, which provide a unique angle of approach to covert realities. Find him on Twitter: @indigo_saudade.

Winnipeg-based Angela Lopes is a writer, and editor, and academic tutor of writing and philosophy. She divides her time between São Paulo, Brazil and Winnipeg, Manitoba, where she is an active member in the arts scene and recently worked with the Winnipeg Arts Council’s Creative Placemaking Challenge—an art installation project displayed in the alleys of the city’s West Exchange District. Lopes’s essays and poems have appeared in an array of publications. Bridge Retakes is her first novel.

J. Robert Ferguson is a student at the University of Winnipeg, and is at work on his first collection of poetry, Humanist Stepfather & Large Adult Son.

Ronel “Squigs” Amata is a Winnipeg poet. He’s studying Environmental Design at The University of Manitoba. In 2016, he published Hostage with Inuyat Press Chapbooks, and won ‘Best Performer’ in The Winnipeg Film Group’s F-Wordz. He’s also a regular host at the Caravan Open Mic. Ronel enjoys road trips.
