Canadian Writers on Tape and Canadian Poets on Tape is a unique heritage project consisting of documents and reel-to-reel tapes made available by Earle Toppings, former editor at The Ryerson Press. Earle Toppings’s recordings with prominent Canadian writers and poets, such as Hugh Garner, Gwendolyn MacEwen and Raymond Souster, capture a distinct moment in Canadian Literature when Canadian voices began making their mark on a global stage. The inaugural Northrop Frye Centre Undergraduate Fellows will be showcasing this compelling collection of conversations and readings, adding their distinct research findings to the discussion. All are welcome to attend.
