Poetry Readings and Launches

October 1st Poetry Reading:

On October 1st Windsor Atelier Virginianne welcomed four Black Moss Press authors to the stage. Peter Hrastovec warmed the crowd up with his humorous poetry, specifically the piece from his latest book in which he makes the acquaintance of Earnest Hemingway. He was followed by Mary Ann Mulhern who rendered the room silent as she shared her powerful new poems that bring news headlines to life. Vanessa Shields made the audience laugh and ponder with her poems of honesty about the female body. Finally, Chad Norman, the featured poet from Nova Scotia, transported listeners to another time and place entirely with his scenes from farm living. Below are some photos from the event.
