Emma Healey will be launching her new poetry collection, Begin With the End in Mind, at Type Books on Queen Street in Toronto.
Emma’s writing examines the animate qualities of seemingly inanimate things and explores personal relationships, collective and individual human experiences, as they are distilled through our encounters with such things as the CBC, chain bookstores, the contents of a kitchen, or the expanse of a whole city. Read our cover story on Emma from Issue 56 here.
Emma will be joined by Toronto writer Chandler Levack, whose work has been featured in the Village Voice, Toronto Life, and the National Post.
