Guernica Authors to Take Part in Poetry Reading at Q Space

Karen Shenfeld, James Deahl, and Michael Mirolla will all be participating in a poetry reading at the Q Space on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 8:00 p.m..

The reading will feature Norma West Linder in her very first Toronto poetry reading, reading from her new selected poems. We at Guernica want to congratulate Norma, and are happy to support her!

Karen Shenfeld has published three books with Guernica Editions: The Law of Return (1999), which won the Canadian Jewish Book Award for Poetry in 2001, The Fertile Crescent (2005), and My Father’s Hands Spoke in Yiddish (2010). Her poetry has also appeared in well-known journals and anthologies published in Canada, the United States, South Africa, and Bangladesh. It has been featured on Canada’s CBC Radio and CKLN, and on 39 Dover Street, a short-wave radio programme produced on the Isle of Wight, England.

James Deahl is the author (or, in the case of Tu Fu’s poetry, translator) of twenty literary titles. His more recent books include North Of Belleville, Opening The Stone Heart, and Room the Wind Makes (Guernica 2012). A cycle of his poems is the focus of a one-hour TV special, Under the Watchful Eye.

Michael Mirolla is a novelist, short story writer, poet and playwright. Publications include two novels, the recently-released The Facility, and Berlin (a 2010 Bressani Prize winner and finalist for the 2009 Indie Book and National Best Books Awards); two short story collections—The Formal Logic of Emotion (recently translated into Italian and released in 2010) and Hothouse Loves & Other Tales; and two poetry collections: the English-Italian Interstellar Distances/Distanze Interstellari (2008), and Light And Time (Guernica 2010). His short story, “A Theory of Discontinuous Existence,” was selected for The Journey Prize Anthology, while another short story, “The Sand Flea,” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Please swing by and show your support to Norma West Linder and enjoy all these other great poets on Thursday! For complete information, please email James Deahl at: jedeahl@gmail.com.
