**POSTPONED** Angeline Schellenberg -- Book Launch

Thursday Apr 16 2020 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

The launch of Fields of Light and Stone (University of Alberta Press) featuring a conversation hosted by Joanne Epp has been postponed. We hope to reschedule as soon as possible and apologize for any disappointment.

You lie awake, needlessly fingering this patchwork guilt. Remorse, a code you live by; distress calls for someone to blame. —from “Threads”

Following the deaths of her Mennonite grandparents, Angeline Schellenberg began exploring in poetry their influence on her life. Her elegiac love letter to them articulates her grief against the backdrop of their involuntary emigration. She artfully captures the immigrant identity, vital to Canadian culture, in poems that draw on events both personal and global: war and famine, dementia and cancer, hidden sacrifice and secrets. Her poems captivate with themes of ancestry, memory, resilience, and forgiveness.

Fields of Light and Stone is a reflection on how family history shapes and moves us.

Angeline Schellenberg is a poet living in Treaty 1 territory (Winnipeg). Her first full-length collection, Tell Them It Was Mozart, received three Manitoba Book Awards and was a finalist for a ReLit Award for Poetry.

Host Joanne Epp's poetry has appeared most recently in Prairie Fire, The New Quarterly, and The Polyglot, and won third place in the 2018 Banff Centre Bliss Carman Poetry Award Contest. She has published one full-length collection of poems, Eigenheim (Turnstone Press), and has a second forthcoming in 2021.
