I first met Maureen Hynes at a Toronto Women’s Bookstore event.  I recognized her from a photo on the net.  I was just curious to see who the editor was who chose my poem No Les Da Verguenza for publication in Our Times: Canada’s Independent Labour Magazine.  I also read Maureens’s first two books of poems; I figured if the editor liked my stuff about working class women of colour then I might like their stuff; and I did.

Maureen was kind in person and it’s always a pleasure running in to her at events.  

I hope you enjoy Marueen reading poetry from her new, and third, book of poems Marrow, Willow.
