Born and raised here on Vancouver Island, Michael Melgaard chronicles the struggles of small-town Canadians in his debut collection. The stories in Pallbearing cover topics as timely and universal as gambling addiction, widowhood, and love after grief with spare, unsentimental prose that pierces to the bone. And Victoria poet Kyeren Regehr follows a young mother through a metaphysical journey unlike anything you’ve read before in her debut collection, Cult Life.
Join us as we kick off our events season with this dual launch from two groundbreaking voices in Canadian literature celebrating their debut collections.
Free to attend. Doors open at 6:30pm.
