Many of you (with gratitude) have been asking me where to go to purchase my new book of poems, Ex Nihilo. I don’t have everyone’s personal email, so here’s the deal:
The book is making its way across bookstores this summer, and should be available in local bookstores such as the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, the York U Bookstore, the U of T Bookstore, A Different Booklist, and Book City.
As you may know, the book was chosen by a jury of leading Canadian poets – bill bissett, George Elliott Clarke, and Alice Major – as a winning manuscript for the Dektet 2010 series. 10 books were published as part of the series, and the ten poets, who hail from all over the country will be coming together to perform in Toronto this September to mark the official Frontenac House 2010 launch, precise location tba.
I will also be hosting a personal launch party for friends in late August or early September , so watch out for an invite!
In the meantime, you can purchase Ex Nihilo one of three ways:
2) From the Frontenac House (my publisher’s) website
3) By coming to one of my readings!!!
Because the official launch month is in September, I will be taking the time to do a few readings across Toronto before then. I will also be selling books! Here are my upcoming readings:
