McCARTNEY LAUNCHES SUBVERSIVE AND SURPRISING COLLECTION


April 11, 2007

Sharon McCartney, the author of two previous poetry collections, is launching a new volume of poetry called The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder, an unusual collection of poems that combines craft, innovation, humour and down-to-earth insight in a focused and riveting read that will charm poetry buffs of every stripe. The poems in The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder subversively and imaginatively inhabit the voices of characters from Wilder’s famous “Little House” books--human and non-human, animate and inanimate--but launch them in new directions. Rather than acting as extensions of Wilder’s stories, the voices, characters and details in the poems become vehicles for modern day questions and observations

McCartney will be launching her book with Fredericton author Mark Anthony Jarman (Dancing Nightly in the Tavern, Brindle & Glass)  on Saturday, April 14 at the Wilsner’s Room Pub, 366 Queen Street in Fredericton at 3pm. For more information about the launch, please contact Westminster Books at (506) 454-1442 or email info@nightwoodeditions.com.
