A Pretty Sight with
David O’Meara

"O'Meara is a poet of the personal. Of the person. In and amongst the social documentary and human observation at which he excels, here is a writer prepared to put feelings on the line and to argue his case with the reader. This is proud, felt and affecting work — I can't think of many other poets so prepared to engage and so equipped to succeed.
— Simon Armitage
David O’Meara
Mike Dubue

To celebrate the launch of his new collection, David O’Meara is collaborating with musician and composer Mike Dubue of HILOTRONS fame for an unforgettable collaboration between two of Ottawa’s most acclaimed talents. 


Like the rhapsodists, the storytellers of ancient Greece, David O’Meara’s latest collection, A Pretty Sight, shapes voices of the past and present into a stitched song lifted and sounded toward the next century. Haunted by 'time’s frame / that dark shape near the edge of the canvas,' the work explores aspects of culture, art, war, rebellion and technology, offering defiance amid decay. 


Books by participating authors available on-site. A booksigning will follow each event.
