poetry and prose about place

‘within easy reach’ – reading and signing

leave a comment »

Spring is here and berry-picking season won’t be far behind. First will be wild strawberries, then raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.


The perfect time for poems about berry picking, gardening and foraging … all in my book of poetry ‘within easy reach’  (Chapel Street Editions, 2016).



I will be out reading from my book three times during the month of April. It’s National Poetry Month and many libraries and bookstores will be featuring reading events.


  • Woodstock  L.P. Fisher Library April 13 – 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM Poetry Night
  • Sackville  Tidewater Books April 18 – 7:00 PM Three Poets
  • St. Stephen  St. Croix Public Library  April 22 – 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM reading and book sale 


Here is the poster for the Sackville event …


As you can see, the Sackville reading will include two other poets whom I admire, Edith Miller and Marilyn Lerch!


At the reading I will be raffling one of my berry-picking paintings. Everyone who buys a copy of ‘within easy reach’ during the evening will be entered to win a draw for the painting ‘blackberry afternoon’, acrylic, gallery edges (unframed), 10″ by 12″

If you live near one of these venues, I would love to see you! Looking forward to those wild strawberries!
