"Love Me True" Anthology Launch - Feb 28th!

I'm really pleased to have a poem from The Other Side of Ourselves, "The Time of Useful Truths", reprinted in Love Me True: Writers Reflect on the Ins, Outs, Ups and Downs of Marriage.

Edited by Fiona Tinwei Lam and Jane Silcott, the book is a mixed-genre anthology of non-fiction essays interspersed with poems on a variety of marriage-related themes. My poem kicks off the "Struggles" section (though I can assure you my marriage held together just fine!).

The Vancouver Launch for the book will take place this Wednesday. The details:
