This Friday evening in Calgary at Pages on Kensington, beaulieu will launch this volume along with another project recently published by WLU Press, Writing Surfaces: Selected Fiction of John Riddell, edited by derek beaulieu and Lori Emerson.
According to the official blurb, “local writers Christian Bök, Richard Harrison, Natalie Simpson, Kathleen Brown, Karis Shearer and others will read /respond to / perform beaulieu’s works and good times will be had.” We hope that you can make it if you’re in the area.
We are celebrating poetry for all of April and offer a few links to sites that are doing the same. For a complete list of our titles visit the Laurier Poetry page on our website. Users of the digital catalogue service Edelweiss can find the poetry catalogue here and on BNC Catalist here.
