Christian McPherson’s “One Poem” Book Launch

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Address: 750 Gladstone Ave, Ottawa, ON K1R 6X5
Phone:(613) 680-9294

Christian McPherson is launching his new collection of poetry entitled, “One Poem.”
If you could write only one poem, what would it be? What should it say? Christian McPherson’s One Poem explores these questions and by doing so delves into a self-examination of the artistic process, what it means to be an artist, and the expectations placed upon the artist. His exploration takes him from the Big Top to the far edges of the galaxy, a journey undertaken with self-deprecating humour, tenderness, and pop culture panache. With One Poem, McPherson climbs a self-made mountain of verse and jumps into the ether when he reaches the summit.
Very special guest Michael Dennis will warm up the crowd with his beautiful new book “Bad Engine” from Anvil Press which was just released this past Spring.
Lots of books available – cash only. Yes, they have beer and food. Not recommend for kids.

Hi Christian, You met my husband today at a book signing at Billing's Bridge. I now have a signed copy of "Saving Her." That meant a lot to me. As an aspiring writer also in Ottawa, this book inspires me as I am in the process of writing a book with similar themes, although about my own life.
I would love some tips. But mainly I wanted to say thank you. Best surprise my husband ever got me was a signed copy of your book!!
