Join us at Munro's Books for the launch of new books by local authors Lorna Crozier and M.A.C. Farrant. Lorna Crozier's After That is a book written from the dark hollow we fall into when we lose those we love. Lorna's sure poetry engages with the grief that comes from the death of her partner, the writer Patrick Lane, with whom she’d lived for forty years, many of them tumultuous. With grace and precision, she illuminates sorrow. M.A.C Farrant's Jigsaw comprises ninety-three literary puzzle pieces that mimic the actual practice of assembling a jigsaw puzzle. By turns whimsical, insightful, meditative, funny, and factual, the “pieces” of Jigsaw touch on several themes readers of Farrant have encountered before: existence, love, joy, science, history, aging, roads, and Buddhism – as well as our universal love of jigsaw puzzles.
At Munro's Books, 1108 Government Street. Doors at 6:30 p.m., Readings start at 7:00 p.m. This event is free to attend.
