THE WORLD IS MOSTLY SKY WINNIPEG BOOK LAUNCH

Tuesday, April 14, 2020, 7:00 pm

McNally Robinson Grant Park, Winnipeg (event link here)

Launch of The World Is Mostly Sky (Turnstone Press). In this shining debut, identity and community converge in poems for a modern generation. Beginning with the open prairie skies of her youth, Sarah Ens maps an emergence into millennial womanhood, questioning feminine expectations and examining heartache and disembodiment during an age of personal and planetary upheaval. The World Is Mostly Sky looks backwards and inwards to find respite in stars, warm earth, and deep waters while rejoicing in the sacred bonds of sisterhood that offer the courage to meet our uncertain horizon.

WILD WRITERS LITERARY FESTIVAL 2019

Parents make for great source material. Award-winning writers Elizabeth Hay and Kathy Page know this all too well. Kathy Page’s Dear Evelyn grew from her father’s war-time love letters to her mother. Elizabeth Hay’s All Things Consoled details the decline of her ferociously independent elderly parents.

Featuring readings from The New Quarterly magazine’s annual writing contest winners, Sarah Ens, Paola Ferrante, and Terence Young. Followed by readings and discussion with Kathy Page and Elizabeth Hay. Moderated by Eufemia Fantetti.
