Open Sesame: Art, Books and Objects

Reading: Kate Sutherland: How to Draw a Rhinoceros - Thursday November 17, 7:00 PM

The poems in How to Draw a Rhinoceros (BookThug, 2016) document the history of European and North American encounters with the rhinoceros—from the elephant-rhinoceros battles staged by medieval monarchs, to Victorian menageries and circuses, to the trade in rhinoceros-horn artifacts that thrives online today. 

Along the way, author Kate Sutherland (a professor at Toronto's Osgoode Hall Law School) explores themes of colonialism, animal welfare, and conservation. Please join us for the last reading in this fall's delightful series with BookThug.
