Hannah Calder’s new novel launches May 27th at the People’s Co-op


New Star Books and Han­nah Calderlaunch poster for Hannah Calder's new novel Piranesi's Figures of Ver­non, BC, proud moth­er of More House, is pleased to announce the union of her new nov­el Piranesi’s Fig­ures to who­ev­er wish­es to dip into its lus­cious pages.

Piranesi’s Fig­ures is a fan­tas­tic tale of ruinous mar­riages and illic­it love that hops from mid-cen­tu­ry Eng­land to present-day Rome, and reach­es back to 18th-cen­tu­ry Rome to add the tit­u­lar Fig­ures, street urchins etched by Gio­van­ni Bttista Pirane­si, to its ensem­ble cast. Michael Turn­er says that “read­ing Calder is to move through the world bare­foot over asphalt, grass, sand and water. This is sen­su­al, insight­ful writ­ing.”

The Van­cou­ver launch is on Fri­day, May 27 at the People’s Co-op Book­store at 1391 Com­mer­cial Dri­ve. We’d be delight­ed to see you there.

Doors are at 7 PM; the cer­e­monies will begin near­er to 8. Refresh­ments will be pro­vid­ed and books will be sold.
