Lexicon Books is excited to host Brian Bartlett, launching his new chapbook Keatonesque (Thee Hellbox Press), and Eleonore Schonmaier, launching her latest book Dust Blown Side of the Journey (McGill-Queen’s University Press). Come for a wonderful evening of poetry, by two very fine Nova Scotian (by way of Halifax and Coastal Europe) authors!

Keatonesque (Thee Hellbox Press), Brian Bartlett’s newest chapbook, is a haiku-&-senryu montage in honour of the 100th anniversary of Buster Keaton’s first appearances in film. It follows his earlier chapbook Being Charlie (Alfred Gustav Press), a similar montage inspired by Charlie Chaplin.

At times apocalyptic and other times passionate and intimate, Eleonore Schönmaier’s poems in Dust Blown Side of the Journey (McGill-Queen’s University Press) show the beauty of the lived and natural world in both wilderness and urban settings.
