Sarah de Leeuw Book Launch - Terrace Public Library

Date: Thursday, September 19, 2019

Time: 7:00pm

Location: Terrace Public Library, 4610 Park Ave, Terrace

Join Sarah de Leeuw to launch her book, Outside, America at the Terrace Public Library. Books will be available for purchase.

Criss-crossing the Canadian/American border and making efforts to grasp a confused global state, Outside, America digs through grief, loss, aging, technological frustrations, environmental degradation and nationalism. This is poetry unfolding across a variety of scales, from global spheres to the most intimate of domestic spaces: tethered to everything from climate change and scientific discovery, from the death of parents to resource extraction, divorce and career changes, these poems touch down on whale extinctions and lounges in international airports, on debris slides and suiciding pilots, on sinkholes, astronauts, grocery-store magazines, earthquakes and even sinking ferries and pop stars.
