Sarah Ens -- Book LaunchTuesday Apr 14 2020 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
Launch of The World Is Mostly Sky (Turnstone Press).
In this shining debut, identity and community converge in poems for a modern generation. Beginning with the open prairie skies of her youth, Sarah Ens maps an emergence into millennial womanhood, questioning feminine expectations and examining heartache and disembodiment during an age of personal and planetary upheaval. The World Is Mostly Sky looks backwards and inwards to find respite in stars, warm earth, and deep waters while rejoicing in the sacred bonds of sisterhood that offer the courage to meet our uncertain horizon.

Her poetry has appeared in literary journals such as Prairie Fire, Arc Poetry Magazine, Contemporary Verse 2, and SAD Mag.
