A reading-launch of Lisa Pasold and Jennifer K Dick's  most recent poetry books ANY BRIGHT HORSE and CIRCUITS!

(see his show all weekend at chez grace before this monday event, too)

Lisa Pasold is a Canadian writer and journalist who divides her time between Paris and Toronto with increasing pit stops in New Orleans. Her most recent book is ANY BRIGHT HORSE. Her first book of poetry WEAVE, was hailed as a masterpiece by Geist. Her second book of poetry, A BAD YEAR FOR JOURNALISTS, was nominated for an Alberta Book Award. The Globe and Mail called this new poetry collection "critical, darkly funny and painstakingly lyrical." Her debut novel, RATS OF LAS VEGAS, was described as "enticing as the lit-up Las Vegas strip and as satisfying as a winning hand at poker" by The Winnipeg Free Press. As a journalist, Lisa has published articles in newspapers and magazines such as The Globe and Mail, The Chicago Tribune, The National Post, Billboard Magazine and The San Francisco Chronicle. She has also written for guidebooks such as Fodor's, Time Out, and Michelin. For more on Lisa Pasold see
