OJIBWE POET DAVID GROULX READS HIS POETRY

Meeting David Groulx at the International Festival of the Authors 2011 was one of the best moments of my writing career.  I was inspired.  I saw someone who looked like me, had a Brown face, who wrote and read well, and didn’t hold back, or care what people thought.

Reading David’s book A Difficult Beauty was a pleasure and a learning experience.  Memories, ideas for future weeks on BCP, and new poems came to me, as well as the glee that someone wrote poems because they had to be written, not because he wanted acclaim and fame.  And I learned more through our interview.

I hope you enjoy David Groulx’s poetry as much as I do.
