“These novels, essay collections, memoirs, histories, and more will help you understand why there is no feminism without intersectionality, why we should remember our history before we repeat it, and why Roe v. Wade is a lot more tenuous than you might think.” -Doree Shafrir

An Evening of Poetry with Jane Eaton Hamilton and Judith Krause

Friday Nov 28 2014 7:00 pm

 

EVENT UPDATE Due to illness, Judith Krause is unable to travel to Saskatoon for this event. Please join us for a solo reading with acclaimed poet, artist and activist Jane Eaton Hamilton.

Dual reading and signing with Jane Eaton Hamilton, author of love will burst into a thousand shapes (Caitlin Press) and Judith Krause, author of Homage to Happiness (Hagios Press)

Art, children, marriage, breaking, rejoicing. Love is a many-branched tree and in Hamilton’s newest poetry collection, her third, it’s autumn or winter, the winds are kicking up and branches are flying everywhere—bursting into a thousand shapes. Or maybe it’s Hamilton’s heart that explodes into many dimensions. Tender, furious, grief-stricken, witty, urbane, elegiac, political, personal, erotic—these poems are all those things. Hamilton can’t stop loving big no matter how chancy it is.

Montreal on Saturday

Just a reminder that I’ll be reading at Blue Metropolis in Montreal on Saturday May 3, 2014.  Also, there’s an award ceremony for my and Sarah Desrosiers’ CBC short fiction wins (English/French) afterwards; please RSVP to the CBC.
