We celebrate Poetry Month and another year of stellar poetry from House of Anansi Press with four of the most anticipated collections of the year:
Twenty years after the publication of his debut, Little Dogs: New and Selected Poems brings together selections from Michael Crummey’s first four books of poetry with a significant offering of new work.
Baziju is the shared voice of poets Roo Borson and Kim Maltman. Box Kite is their collaboratively written sequence of prose poems, a meditation on the way we travel between places and between times, and how words and ideas travel between languages.
Not a narrative. Not an essay. Not a shopping list. Not a song. Not a diary. Not an etiquette manual. Not a confession. Not a prayer. Not a secret letter sent through the silent Palace hallways before dawn. Making a daybook of oblivion, Suzanne Buffam’s A Pillow Book leads the reader on a darkly comic tour through the dim-lit valley of fitful sleep.
Governor General’s Literary Award finalist and bestselling author Steven Heighton returns with The Waking Comes Late, a collection of laments and celebrations that reflect on our struggle to believe in the future of a world that continues to disappoint us.
Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
