We’re so excited to announce our 17th annual ‘For the Love of Words' fundraiser! 

A collection of poets, spoken word artists, musicians and Action Read learners will participate in readings, performances and conversations throughout the evening. Poets will include Kevin Sutton, Allison LaSorda, Shannon Bramer, and Bashar Lulu Jabbour. Artist Dawn Matheson will present her spoken word project with Action Read learners, and music will be provided by Guelph rising stars art-folk / rock duo The Lifers. The event will be led by emcee extraordinaire Jerry Schramek.

FLOW is about experiencing LIVE poetry - the way poetry is intended! It’s about really hearing the honest, incisive and passionate testimony of individuals who have chosen an elemental instrument - the human voice - to make their mark on the world. It’s about feeling less alone and more connected to others. And yet…it’s about so much more. FLOW builds a powerful collective around literacy and self-expression. As Canada’s 2017 Poet Laureate George Elliott Clarke commented: "Seldom have I encountered such an inspiring set of fellow and sister poets, and such a rapturous and enthusiastic audience.”

Tickets are only $20 and are available at the Bookshelf, at Action Read and at the door. They are also available online at (search FLOW 2019. A $1.51 administrative fee applies to online ticket sales). A one-of-a-kind silent auction made possible by the dedicated support of numerous local artists, restaurants and businesses will also be available.

Action Read would like to thank the 2019 event sponsors, including Canadian Scholars, RBC Royal Bank, The Guelph & District Labour Council, Guelph Music, TAMBRO Construction, Chaplin Renovation & Construction, WriteDesign, and Wellington Brewery. 

This is a licensed event. It’s also a rollicking good time!
