Nightwood Editions is excited to celebrate the release of its Fall 2016 titles with events and readings across the country.
In Vancouver, Adèle Barclay launches her debut poetry collection If I Were in a Cage I’d Reach Out for You on October 18 at the Emerald in Vancouver. Barclay will be joined by fellow Nightwood poets Elizabeth Bachinsky, Raoul Fernandes, and Sheryda Warrener, for an evening of music, tarot, cake and prizes. Barclay will also be in Montreal in November, reading at Drawn & Quarterly on the 17th, and participating in the Pivot Reading Series in Toronto and the Tree Reading Series in Ottawa.
Also on October 18, on the other side of the country, The Woods: A Year on Protection Island author Amber McMillan and Digsite poet Owain Nicholson team up, alongside authors Nathaniel G. Moore and Spencer Gordon, for a book launch and reading at Type Books at 883 Queen Street West in Toronto. The event features readings, refreshments and giveaways, including the chance to win a 1-year subscription to Taddle Creek, Toronto’s literary magazine.
Tim Bowling launched The Duende of Tetherball in Edmonton on October 7. The event was covered by the Edmonton Journal, calling Bowling’s collection an exploration of “the heart-pounding giddiness of survival” and Bowling a poet who “walks the wobbly line between joy and sorrow, always with fingers crossed that the balance tilts positive.”
In November, Gregory Scofield launches his latest collection of poems Witness, I Am, a gripping collection that delves into issues of identity, belonging, and the desperate state of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Scofield reads alongside Nightwood poets Tim Bowling and Elizabeth Bachinsky at The Paper Hound in Vancouver on November 26.
