Lauren Carter -- Book Launch

Thursday Feb 21 2019 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of Following Sea (Turnstone Press).

Spanning almost two hundred years, Following Sea finds anchor in the submerged regions of the heart. With great care, Lauren Carter wades into family histories and geography, all the while charting her own territories. Carried by the ebb and flow of language, Carter’s second collection explores issues of infertility, identity, and settler migration, offering a tender examination of home. Urgent and intimate, Following Sea leads us along the shoreline of Carter’s Manitoulin memories to show us what she has carried up from the depths.

Lauren Carter is an award-winning poet and former Ontarian living in St. Andrews, Manitoba. Her debut poetry collection, Lichen Bright, was long-listed for the ReLit Award and an earlier poem, “Island Clearances,” won the ROOM 2014 poetry contest. Her first novel, Swarm was voted onto the CBC Canada Reads long list and her prose has been nominated and long-listed for various awards and been anthologized in Best Canadian Stories. Following Sea is Carter’s second collection of poetry.
