Mad Long Emotion | Edmonton Launch

Join us for the Edmonton launch of Ben Ladouceur's latest book, MAD LONG EMOTION, published by Coach House Books!

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Desire and dieffenbachias: new poems from the award-winning author of Otter. MAD LONG EMOTION wants to talk flora to fauna like you. Loosestrife shoos away humans and green carnations flirt with handsome men. Numerous species, both spiny and spineless, prove as invasive as desire: from Great Lake lampreys to hydraulic triceratopses, we're all just looking for love.

BEN LADOUCEUR is the author of OTTER, which was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and awarded the 2016 Gerald Lampert Memorial prize. In 2018, he received the Dayne Ogilvie prize for best emerging LGBTQ writer.

SCOTT JACKSHAW has just completed a BA in English and Creative Writing. His poetry and prose have recently appeared in The Capilano Review, Hart House Review, Glass Buffalo, and PRISM international.

ISABEL YANG is from Wuhan, China, and has lived across Western Canada. They are now residing and studying in Edmonton at the University of Alberta. You can find their poems in Glass Buffalo or upcoming in Room.

Amy Fung Book Launch & Talk
May
23
6:00 PM18:00

Amy Fung Book Launch & Talk

Join author Amy Fung and University of Alberta Writer-in-Residence Janet Rogers for an evening of readings and conversation from their latest works.

Following the tangents of a foreign-born perspective and the complexities and complicities in participating in ongoing acts of colonial violence, Fung’s Before I was a Critic I was a Human Being takes the form of a very long land acknowledgement. Taken individually, each piece roots itself in the learning and unlearning process of a first generation settler immigrant as she unfurls each region’s sense of place and identity.

We’ll be on-site with copies of Amy Fung’s and Janet Rogers’ books for purchase.
