Reading in Perth, ON

I’m so pleased to announce that I’ll be bringing the fox back home… to Lanark County, that is. I’ll be reading at the library in Perth, ON, where some of these poems were written years ago! Here’s the info:

“The Perth & District Union Public Library is pleased to be hosting author and poet Julie Paul for a reading and book signing on Friday, August 10th, 2018, at 2 p.m.

Julie, originally from Lanark Village and now living in Victoria, BC, is the author of three books: two short story collections and her latest release, a poetry collection, called “The Rules of the Kingdom”(McGill-Queens University Press). Spanning in subject matter from pioneers to puberty, motherhood to marriage—even poems about the Lanark Fire—”The Rules of the Kingdom” has received excellent reviews, and was a finalist for both the 2018 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize and 2018 The Gerald Lampert Memorial Prize.

Backbeat Books, Music & Gifts will be offering books for sale.”
