From Turtle Island to Gaza Book Launch

May 16 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm

Free

Please join Octopus Books for the launch of David Groulx’s newest book of poetry, From Turtle Island to Gaza.

With a sure voice, Groulx, an Anishinaabe writer, artistically weaves together the experiences of Indigenous peoples in settler Canada with those of the people of Palestine, revealing a shared understanding of colonial pasts and presents.

This free event will also feature a reading by Trillium Award-winning Francophone poet Eric Charlebois from his debut English-language collection, Sandscapes.

“David Groulx is an important poetic voice. Intellectually and emotionally generous, his poetry both gives and demands presence, and a willingness to acknowledge reality and engage at a deeper level.” —Joanne Arnott, author of A Night for the Lady
