Greg Santos NAC Reading

Share with other Readers...

On May 2, 2020, I was originally scheduled to launch my new full-length poetry book, GHOST FACE, at the 2020 Blue Metropolis Festival. Blue Met, along with so many other public events, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

I am so pleased, however, to announce that I have been selected to perform as part of the #CanadaPerforms initiative through Ottawa’s National Arts Centre / Centre national des Arts on the same date!

Even though GHOST FACE’s release through DC Books is still yet to be determined, I will be doing a Facebook Live streaming performance of me reading excerpts from my forthcoming book, along with selections from my two other Punchy Poetry/DC Books titles, RABBIT PUNCH! (2014), and THE EMPEROR’S SOFA (2010). My live-streaming performance will be followed by a Q&A.

My performance will be taking place on Saturday, May 2nd, 3pm-3:45pm EST on my Facebook Author Page. I will be safely social distancing and performing this event from my home. Join me as we celebrate living a life poetic!
