“The Cross-Border Reading series was born in 2005, out of my great desire to connect writers, especially poets, who did not know about each other’s work. Having lived in both the U.S. and Canada, I was stunned by how little each country knew about the other’s writers and poets (especially the Americans about the Canadians, but never mind). Even if we lived only an hour apart, there was a great wall between us. I wanted to create cross-cultural connections and forge links, making our local community more international. It has been a great gift to be able to do so.” — Rachel Rose
