Poetry Launch: Beverley Bie Brahic & Robyn Sarah
Ben McNally Books
Join Fitzhenry and Whiteside and Ben McNally Books to celebrate the launch of two fantastic new poetry collections by Beverley Bie Brahic and Robyn Sarah. The launch will be at the store and refreshments will be served.
White Sheets by Beverley Bie Brahic
Fitzhenry & Whiteside
Beverley Bie Brahic is a poet with her eye on what is happening between us, between continents on which she lives, between familial relationships, between languages in which she works. In this, her second collection—-the first to be published in Canada—-her assured and dignified voice speaks of the world around her, creating original and fascinating poems.
Beverley Bie Brahic is a poet and translator. Born in Saskatoon, she grew up in Vancouver and was educated at the University of British Columbia, Columbia University, and the Université de Provence. She has published a poetry collection, Against Gravity and a number of translations from French, including a selection of poems by Francis Ponge, Unfinished Ode to Mud, a finalist for the Popescu Prize for Poetry in Translation, and Hélène Cixous's Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint. She lives in Stanford, California and Paris, France.
Digressions by Robyn Sarah
Fitzhenry & Whiteside
Robyn Sarah is a poet of variousness and formal acuity, and Digressions is very much about both of those things.
Robyn Sarah is the author of several poetry collections, including The Touchstone: Poems New and Selected and Questions About The Stars, as well as two collections of short stories. Born in New York City in 1949 to Canadian parents, she grew up in Montreal, where she still lives. She is a graduate of the Conservatoire de Musique et d’Art Dramatique du Québec, where she studied clarinet, and of McGill University, where she honoured in philosophy. Her poems began appearing in Canadian periodicals in the early 1970s, while she completed an M.A. in English.
