Offsite Book Sales – Emily Davidson with Catherine J. Stewart at the Beaumont Gallery
May 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Please join us for a poetry party!
We’ll be launching Emily Davidson’s debut poetry collection, “Lift”, new this spring with Thistledown Press. Set both in Emily’s hometown of Saint John and her adopted home of Vancouver, it’s a book about “how to be alive without being adrift” – and we all could use more of that in our lives, am I right?
We will also be celebrating the release of Catherine J. Stewart’s “Snow Melts First in the Middle of the Slough.” Catherine’s work recalls her childhood spent outdoors in Spillimacheen, B.C., and we’re thrilled she can be with us for the evening.
Kicking things off will be wonderful Vancouver poet Ben Rawluk, whose work has appeared in PRISM international, Plentitude Magazine, and Maisonneuve, among others.
There will be: a cash bar, books for sale, and a cool, arty vibe, courtesy of The Beaumont Gallery. Three readers, (hopefully) snacks, and no stress, only friendship.
Venue: The Beaumont Studios Gallery, 2109 Alberta Street
Doors open: 7:30pm
The venue is accessible, with washrooms next door. We will add accessibility details to this space as we have them, please stay tuned.
Books will be available for purchase via cash or card, many thanks to Massy Books.
