With her debut collection now officially launched, Amber McMillan has introduced readers to her "poems...of a dark, spikey nature" (says fellow W&W poet Catherine Graham in a review). You can pick up a copy of We Can't Ever Do This Again at your local independent bookseller (or directly from Wolsak and Wynn online), but don't miss a chance to hear Amber read her words aloud at The Paper Hound Bookshop this Friday, May 22.
As part of Across Canada in Poetry, Amber joins poets Jamie Sharpe and Jeff Steudel for readings and conversation. The fun starts at 7 p.m., and the event is free.
