Barbara Landry will be launching her new book of poetry, “This Is How I Love You” on Saturday April 18th at 11am.
The poems in This is How I Love You are about the deep familial and spiritual bonds that exist at a visceral level. The inner dialogue surrounding these bonds is the raw material Landry draws from. She writes about losing a beloved sister, a God who whispers in her ear, a solitary afternoon in a Cuban cafÃ©. Landry doesnâ€™t shy away from the big questions and tackles them with courage and humour. With a language that is easily accessible, one containing a distinct musicality and rhythm, these poems leave an imprint on both the ear and the heart.

Nicola Vulpe will be signing copies of his new title, “The Extraordinary Event of Pia H.”, at Books on Beechwood. The event takes place on April 18th at 11am.
Quill and Quire have published a review of Nicola’s book on their site. Here’s an excerpt:
The Extraordinary Event of Pia H. is superficially a tale of a wife gone missing from a Spanish plaza â€“ miraculously vanished into thin air, if two elderly doÃ±as are to be believed â€“ and a frantic husbandâ€™s search for her. However, within the storyâ€™s dense, dreamlike folds of shifting identities, questionable realities, and a cryptic parallel narrative, deeper and darker possibilities exist.
“Nicola Vulpe is one of Canada’s most intriguing and imaginative authors. The Extraordinary Event of Pia H. is a story of dark miracles, but the real miracle is the writing: dense, playful — and utterly engaging.”
–Mark Frutkin, author of Fabrizioâ€™s Return
