Priscila Uppal and Meaghan Strimas Poetry Launches

Wednesday, March 24, 2010 - 8:00pm



Join Priscila Uppal and Meaghan Strimas at the launch of their new poetry collections--Traumatology and A Good Time Had By All, both with Exile Editions.

Snacks will be provided. There will also be a cash bar and cash book table.


Priscila Uppal: Traumatology

In this, her sixth major collection of poetry, the standards by which we define our mental, physical, and spiritual health are dissected in the poet's holistic laboratory. Men with wands patrol the neighbourhood charting cellular death, past selves smuggle themselves aboard airplanes for exotic trips, while the unhappy spin the psychological wheel of blame. Playful, satirical, surreal, yet unflinchingly humane in its examination of states of being, this new collection by one of Canada's most unique talents will change the way you think about your body, your mind, spirit, and will lead you off into uncharted regions.

Meaghan Strimas: A Good Time Had By All

This is a gory, glorious hangover of a book. These poems are all about aftermath, events recollected in something less than tranquility. There is regret in the coming down and more than a hint of remorse. But also a clear-eyed celebration, a reverence for the world as it is in the light of the morning after. ~ MICHAEL CRUMMEY
