Launches Coast to Coast

Ray Hsu

Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon, the follow-up to Ray Hsu’s award-winning first collection, Anthropy, has been launched in Toronto. Rumour has it that Ray’s endeavour to start an alternative economy through a “launchswap,” accepting barters for books, netted him a real-life bird cage to go with his book cover. Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon was also launched in Vancouver along with the latest issue of Ricepaper Magazine, at the Rhizome Café on August 19.

Patternicity by Jim Johnstone and Other Poems by Jay MillAr were launched at the Piston in Toronto at an event dubbed “Pattern Recognition: A Night[wood] of Poetry.” (Thanks to BookThug Jenny Sampirisi for all her help on this one!)

Finally, Triny Finlay launched her second collection of poetry, Histories Haunt Us, in Fredericton. And she SOLD OUT of books! We do have more, readily orderable online through Harbour Publishing.
