Green Fuse / Red Fuse – Double Chapbook Launch

2 Cool Kims… 2 Hot Chapbooks! Launching this Saturday at 11:30 am at Maffeo Sutton Park in Nanaimo (right after my free Qigong lesson there at 10:00 am).

Kim Goldberg & Kim Clark – doin’ it right! (or at least doin’ it rhymed) on the wrong side of the seagulls.

Watch the 2 Kims go mano-a-mano (in a literary sort of way). Free cookies will prevail throughout.

From Kim Goldberg’s corner: 

Igniting the Green Fuse – A chapbook anthology of eco-poetry (ecologically themed poetry) by four BC women poets: Kim Goldberg, Kate Braid, Catherine Owen, and Heidi Greco. The book was produced for the inaugural Cascadia Poetry Festival held March 2012 in Seattle. The four poets featured in Igniting the Green Fuse traveled to the festival to offer a workshop and panel discussion on eco-poetry, and to launch their chapbook. The limited edition chapbook is a collector’s item with only 100 copies in existence. Each copy is hand-sewn, numbered, and signed by all four authors.

Price: $10. Available from  Limited edition of 100.

From Kim Clark’s corner: 

Disease and Desire – A manuscript of the body’s domain and the spirit’s will to fight the disease’s abduction of the body. Through determination, rage and the embrace of every moment, Kim Clark shows us she is not the victim of the disease, which is Multiple Sclerosis, and not the survivor, but master of the art of living regardless of the pain that interrupts her will. This manuscript is not for the glossy catalogues of platitudes that glaze over raw emotion.  Nor is it for the museum of documented sufferings.  This is the literary vivisection of a particular life displayed without pity.  As you read each page you will laugh and cry and be thankful for getting to know Kim through her unapologetic disclosures.

Price: $10 Available at  Limited edition of 75.
