You’re invited to the launch of “House of Blessing,” a poetry chapbook by Montreal poet Jan Jorgensen, published this month by sitting duck press.
“House of Blessing” Chapbook Launch
Thursday, September 23 / jeudi, 23 septembre
19 h – 21 h
Griffintown Cultural Corridor
corner of Ottawa and Dalhousie / au coin des rues Ottawa et Dalhousie
This is an outdoor venue. Feel free to bring a lawn chair for your comfort. In case of inclement weather we will move indoors.
I have been honoured to serve as editor for this fine collection. Jan’s poems are brave encounters with the traumatic edges of human experience and the redemptive possibilities of the divine. She asks us to let go of what we think we know — about God, the Bible, motherhood, death. She asks us to let go of certainty altogether and contemplate grace. Come snatch up your copy, hot off the presses!
