Joanne Epp Online Book Launch

Friday Jun 04 2021 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Online, Zoom

Please join Joanne Epp in conversation with Angeline Schellenberg as we celebrate the launch of Joanne’s new collection Cattail Skyline (Turnstone Press).

Registration is required to directly participate in the Zoom webinar. The event will be simultaneously streamed on YouTube and available for viewing thereafter.

In Cattail Skyline Joanne ventures from open prairie roads into little creek beds, down onto the warm earth of strawberry patches and far afield to the busy markets of Cambodia to examine the intimate ways we come to know and experience place. With vivid detail and a sense of quiet reverence, Cattail Skyline captures a myriad of landscapes where every change of season and slant of light reveals something previously unnoticed, and where even the most well- trodden paths hold the potential for new discovery.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Joanne Epp has published poetry in literary journals including The New Quarterly, Prairie Fire, and Canadian Literature. Her first book, Eigenheim, earned her a nomination for the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer. Married with two sons, she spent several years in Ontario and now makes her home in Winnipeg. Cattail Skyline is Joanne’s second book.

Host Angeline Schellenberg wrote Tell Them It Was Mozart (Brick Books), a collection about raising children on the autism spectrum, which won three Manitoba Book Awards. In 2019, she published three chapbooks and was nominated for The Pushcart Prize. The host of Speaking Crow—Winnipeg’s longest-running poetry open mic, Angeline recently launched Fields of Light and Stone (University of Alberta Press).
