Please join us to celebrate the launch of On Second Thought by Priscila Uppal and Another Dysfunctional Cancer Poem Anthology, co-edited by Priscila Uppal and Meaghan Strimas.
Priscila Uppal, called “Canada’s coolest poet” by Time Out London magazine, and the author of more than a dozen works of memoir, fiction, poetry, and drama, died of cancer in September 2018 at the age of 43.
Another Dysfunctional Cancer Poem Anthology, which Uppal co-edited with Trillium Poetry Prize winner Meaghan Strimas, includes original and powerful work from authors touched by the disease, including Teva Harrison, Zoe Whittall, Canisia Lubrin, Molly Peacock, A.F. Moritz, Pamela Mordecai, Christian Bök, Bardia Sinaee, Adam Sol, and more.
On Second Thought is Uppal’s final collection of poetry. She completed edits on the work shortly before her death.
Both books are published by Toronto’s Mansfield Press.
This event will be a public celebration of Priscila’s life and work. All are welcome.
We will also be celebrating the launch D.A. Lockhart’s collection The Gravel Lot that Was Montana, also published by Mansfield Press.
