Book Launch for Return of the Wild Goose by Jane Ledwell


Come celebrate the launch of Jane Ledwell's new poetry collection, Return of the Wild Goose. Jane will be joined by Irish concertina player Gormlaith Maynes, accompanied by Jesse Périard on guitar.

Return of the Wild Goose explores the life of writer and activist Katherine Hughes. Set against the intimate relief of a PEI landscape, these poems are inspired by what is known—and unknown—about her contradictory life as a Catholic teacher in Mohawk territory; a journalist working alongside Canada’s first-wave feminists and suffragettes; the first public archivist of Alberta; and finally, as a zealous propagandist for the Irish cause. This (auto)biographical dialogue between Jane Ledwell and Katherine Hughes offers the reader a fierce remembrance of a PEI radical.

Enjoy a short poetry reading, some Irish music, and catch up with new and old friends. Books will be available for sale, but if you can't wait until the launch, the lovely folks at the Bookmark can hook you up. Hope to see you there!
