Book Launch of The Blue Moth of Morning
May 9 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pmFree
P.C. Vandall launches her new book, “The Blue Moth of Morning” from Porcupine’s Quill, an artisanal book publisher that values the craft of the book in form and content and has been publishing Canadian authors for over forty years.
From the Porcupine’s Quill website: In The Blue Moth of Morning, P. C. Vandall by turns acknowledges, embraces and subverts clichés of female relationships, emotions and bodies, exposing the inner tumult women often try to conceal under a thin veneer of aplomb.
Full of wit and wordplay, P.C. Vandall’s The Blue Moth of Morning reveals the anarchy that often reigns behind an outward illusion of female self-control. These poems remind us that love is not blushing brides, rosy-red cheeks and ruby lips; that idols can tire of being hailed like cabs, evoked in the night and preyed upon by sinners; that pants can sing a woman’s shame; and that if you leave uncooked meat in the street, dogs will come and eat it.
By turns appreciative and deprecatory of the sundry facets of life, Vandall writes as one who recognizes that marriage can be a frying pan one swings at one’s spouse—and that one can miss the mark but still make a point.
