Renowned feminist author, poet, multi-media artist and international phenomenon, Rupi Kaur makes Vancouver her only Canadian stop on a whirlwind 2017 world tour. Called "the voice of her generation", Kaur's first book of poetry and prose was on the New York Times bestseller list for over seven months, and she has over 700K followers on Instagram.
Kaur’s work, visually suited for a sharing culture and one that communicates particularly well on platforms like Instagram, have turned her into a viral sensation - first within feminist circles, and then beyond into the media ecosystem at large. Her themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity are both deeply personal and universally relatable. Kaur shares her writing and art with the world as a means to create a safe space. She is destined to be regarded as an important poet for decades to come.
Opening for Kaur's spoken word performance is Baltimore-based singer, Beya Likhari. Get your tickets early, as this show will sell out quickly!
