From Turtle Island to Gaza Book Launch

Octopus Books, 116 Third Ave, Ottawa, ON

Please join Octopus Books for the launch of David Groulx's newest book of poetry, From Turtle Island to Gaza.

With a sure voice, Groulx, an Anishinaabe writer, artistically weaves together the experiences of Indigenous peoples in settler Canada with those of the people of Palestine, revealing a shared understanding of colonial pasts and presents.

This free event will also feature a reading by Trillium Award-winning Francophone poet Eric Charlebois from his debut English-language collection, Sandscapes.

“David Groulx is an important poetic voice. Intellectually and emotionally generous, his poetry both gives and demands presence, and a willingness to acknowledge reality and engage at a deeper level.” —Joanne Arnott, author of A Night for the Lady
