Bowling celebrates twenty years of writing with his latest collection, Selected Poems, which will be launched at Audreys Books on Thursday, May 2 at 7 pm. The book launch is open to the public and admission is free. Audreys Books is located at 10702 Jasper Avenue. For event details, please phone 780-423-3487.
With Selected Poems, Bowling has gathered together his finest poems, a selection including work from his debut collection, Low Water Slack, to his award-winning tenth collection, Tenderman. Always a poet of intense emotion and surprising metaphor whose lyric-narrative voice ranges in tone from romantic to humorous to coldly tragic and dark, Bowling’s integrity has never wavered, nor has his commitment to celebrating poetic tradition and his love of the natural world.
