Tour des Arts Reading

I'll be reading once again at the Tour des Arts English reading in Sutton, Quebec, on Tuesday, July 16 (tonight!). I've read at or hosted this annual event for most of the past thirteen years, I believe. It's fun! I'll be reading some newish, unpublished poems. Hope to see you there!

Chair auction this Saturday in Sutton!

My chair is one of the chosen! I was surprised and delighted that the director and the curator of the Musée des beaux arts de Sherbrooke selected my chair amongst twelve for a live auction --a fundraising event for Sutton's cultural centre-- from the fifty wonderful chairs done by local artists. The vernissage was a couple of weeks ago. The culminating event is tomorrow evening. I'm a bit nervous: the bidding starts at $500.

Poetry chair

I was asked to do this chair as part of a fundraising campaign for a cultural centre in Sutton, Quebec. As you can see, I was directly inspired by designer David Drummond's striking cover for the colour. It will soon be available for sale.

Yet more attention for the cover design!

David Drummond's brilliant cover design for my book keeps attracting attention. This time it won a cover design contest at Abe Books. (I only voted in one round!)

A blogger's reflections on my book

Just found this blog post.

A wonderful review

I just happened upon this review of my book by David Leahy in Canadian Literature. An unexpected Sunday gift.

"Briscoe has a talent for dissecting, often via stunning figurative juxtapositions, the lurking threats and paradoxes of our relationships to a deceptively idyllic world."
