David W. McFadden and Roseanne Carrara are launching new books!

When: Wednesday, May 30, at 7pm.
Where: The Dora Keogh Pub, 141 Danforth Ave. Toronto.
I will be the emcee.

DAVID W. McFADDEN will be launching his Selected Poems: Why Are You So Sad? Edited and introduced by Stuart Ross.

“David’s poetry, like David, is social. It’s interested in people, and in trees, squirrels, dogs, and oceans. It’s also social in that it wants to be read, and it makes itself readable – not just to academics and to other poets, but to the convenience-store guy and the woman on the bus…. There are few Canadian poets who offer as much pure pleasure as Dave. In fact, he forbids analysis of his poems.” – Stuart Ross, from the introduction

ROSEANNE CARRARA will be launching A Newer Wilderness, her amazing debut collection of poems.

"Roseanne Carrara’s poems in A Newer Wilderness actually say something about life today, and they say it in clear, generous, precise registrations. Her directness and depth of literary and artistic reference allow her (convincingly and without expressionism) to propose Presence as perhaps our only hope for renewal both of our relationship to nature and of our cultural forms. Carrara’s clean, sharp lines, at times extending into long poems and poetic essay, are a welcome breath of fresh air." – Sharon Thesen
