Don’t forget: Twenty Seven Stings launches Nov. 11


Twenty Seven Stings animated coverPlease join us on Remem­brance Day to launch Twen­ty Sev­en Stings, a suite of pow­er­ful­ly under­stat­ed poems by Julie Emer­son that engage with var­i­ous aspects of war through­out human his­to­ry. Twen­ty Sev­en Stings fea­tures numer­ous beau­ti­ful illus­tra­tions by Rox­an­na Bikado­roff (none of which are ani­mat­ed though, because it’s paper.)

The launch is at the Com­mer­cial St. Cafe at 3599 Com­mer­cial St. (at E. 20th Ave.) Doors open around 7 pm and Julie will read clos­er to 8 pm. Admis­sion is free. There will be refresh­ments (gratis) and books ($18; cash or cred­it card).

A lim­it­ed num­ber of book-buy­ers will also get a beeswax can­dle hand­made by Julie.

Face­book event is here; invite all and sundry!

You can lis­ten to Julie and Rox­an­na dis­cuss the book and mythol­o­gy and poet­ry and more in Hap­py Hour Sym­po­sium #2.
