Virtual Book Club: Reading the Jungle
Thursday March 25 & Thursday April 15, 7PM
Online on Zoom

Join Hamilton-based writer John Hill for a virtual book club held in two parts over zoom. Interested book club members will read Upton Sinclair’s 1906 novel The Jungle. John Hill will lead two lively discussions of the book’s themes in connection with the exhibition. The first meeting in March will cover the first half of the book, and the second meeting in April will cover the second half of the book.

John Isaiah Edward Hill is a queer, Indigenous, working class poet and artist from Hamilton, Ontario. He is Oneida nation, Turtle clan from Six Nations of the Grand River. His poetry deals with colonization, queerness, anger, hope, and the enchantment which lies beneath the surface of so-called modern civilization
