Joanne Arnott author pic website smHalfling Spring: an internet romance   

Shortlisted for the 2015 Pat Lowther Memorial Award!
Author: Joanne Arnott
llustrations: Leo Yerxa

In Halfling Spring , a series of notes unfolds the dance of desire versus trust through a long season of actual and metaphorical springtime.

Joanne Arnott is a Métis/mixed blood mother of six, and in this collection she continues her explorations of love, intimacy, and family, with a focus on electronic connections (internet love). Transiting Canada from Victoria to Iqaluit, and transitioning from virtual to real (fantasy to reality), she inspects the realms of miscegenation and love in a class conscious and cross-cultural context, revealing en route the many ways that our deepest connections unveil the depths of old pain.

Optimistic and playful, romantic and mythic, affirming embodiment, this process of poetic revelation shows all the dirty tricks of love.

Steepy Mountain
by author: Joanne Arnott.

"Natohta, listen. A woman is coming down from the mountain bearing a basket of poems, love songs for her nicimos, her sweetheart who has moved from shadows into the light. Natohta, listen.

A women is coming down from the mountain, sacred in her bones. ...she is singing from the marrow, from her woman heart."

- Gregory Scofield

Beautiful Razor: love poems & other lies
By Author: Al Hunter

“What lies here are the vagaries of a heart wounded, shattered, and redeemed by love. Such generosity of spirit deserves acclaim. A bravura work.”
Richard Wagamese author of Indian Horse
 
This much awaited collection of poems is the third poetry book written by the former Rainy River First Nations Chief.  In Beautiful Razor: love poems and other lies, Al Hunter explores the span between the sensual and the profane; the distance of which can sometimes be vast or on the razor’s edge.

CEREMONIES FOR THE DEAD

Ceremonies for the Dead

By Author: Gwen Benaway (published as Giles Benaway)

Ceremonies for the Dead examines the haunting themes of inter-generational trauma, cyclical abuse and inherited grief. Four generations of the dead take turns narrating these themes, navigating from the Great Lakes through the Appalachian Mountains, and examining the fur trade, an exile from Minnesota, the experiences of West Virginia coal miners, and the legacy of mission schools. Black humour and satire fill the collection, illuminating a fierce determination to survive and resist colonization and the endurance of culture and identity under extreme duress.

Ceremonies for the Dead is the award-winning debut book of poetry written by Gwen Benaway.
