Join Museum London for the city's biggest ever poetry project; literally two storeys high on the Centre at the Forks rear projection screens! Experience poetry at its most monumental in these outsized writings selected from Thomas King's latest book 77 Fragments of a Familiar Ruin. Stand behind the Museum and place yourself between the poems and the river itself; a shifting space of water, turtles, promises, and legends from a pre-colonial time. The poems will be projected from dusk till dawn every Monday to Thursday for the rest of July. 

Governor General's Literary Award winner, member of the Order of Canada, and one of North America’s finest contemporary Indigenous writers, Thomas King lives in Guelph, Ontario. Special thanks to Thomas King and Harper Collins Publishing Ltd for granting permission to display these poems.
