Eve Joseph's two books of poetry, The Startled Heart (Oolichan, 2004) and The Secret Signature of Things (Brick, 2010) were both nominated for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. Her nonfiction book, In the Slender Margin, was published by HarperCollins in 2014 and won the Hubert Evans award for nonfiction. The book was named one of the Top 100 picks of the year by the Globe and Mail.
This week we obsessively followed our hashtag #CarryOnBooks after our successful landing at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, got a taste of some new poetry, a follow-up read, and discovered a debut author.
The fall is filled with fabulous literary festivals. Think author signings, readings, writing workshops — and the opportunity to discover great new books and meet Canadian publishers and editors.
