Make way for three of the Island’s finest writers, whose new collections frame love and loss in ways both mythic and intimate. In Minerva's Owl, Nanaimo’s Carol Matthews sets out to discover what bereavement means to her after the loss of her husband. Meanwhile, God of Shadows introduces a whole new host of earthy, wry, and delightful deities from poetry legend Lorna Crozier. And in Amateurs at Love, Patricia Young sidesteps the epic for subtle, closely observed poems set in the space between lovers: that charged, mysterious distance so many of us strain to close.
Sip, nibble, and make connections at a thought-provoking triple launch.
