Join us to celebrate Desert Pet Press’ (co-founded by Catriona Wright and Akin Dupont member Emma Dolan) return from the underworld! We’ve resurfaced with two new chapbooks: Lilith by Jacqueline Valencia and Sea Burial Laws According to Country by Kasia van Schaik (Kasia Juno).
When: Thursday, November 22nd 2018
Where: Reunion Island Coffee, 385 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto.
Some launch advice from the poets:
Please arrive “…washed and dressed in handmade clothing, the seams left unfinished” (Kasia van Schaik, “Russia”) and be prepared to “Get dizzy and pretend you’re a half-nymph, / part baby dragonfly, part insatiable want” (Jacqueline Valencia, “Hey have a holy time”).
There will be chapbooks and beer/wine/coffee/tea for sale. There will be short readings by the poets. There will be surprises.
