Literary Collage: The Virtues of Themed Story & Poem Collections

TUES FEB 10 (Note change in room location)
ROOM A, 4th floor Central Branch, Hamilton Public Library
Having recently edited two themed short story anthologies for Seraphim Editions--In the Wings: Stories of Forgotten Women, and Engraved: Canadian Stories of World War One--BERNADETTE RULE invites you to consider (and bring examples of) what is gained when stories or poems are collected on a single theme.  Rule has had seven collections of poetry published.  In 2015 Seraphim will bring out her new poetry collection, Earth Day in Leith Churchyard: Poems in Search of Tom Thomson. Rule won the 2014 Short Works Prize for Literary Non-Fiction for "A Layer of Ghosts" (Hamilton Arts & Letters #6) She also hosts Art Waves, an arts-interview program on 101.5 The Hawk every Sunday from 7p.m. to 8p.m.
