Reading and signing to launch poetry collection

Emilia DanielewskaUWindsor creative writing grad Emilia Danielewska (BA 2012, MA 2015) will launch her debut book of prose-poetry, Paper Caskets, with a reading and signing Wednesday, September 19, at Biblioasis.

Divided into four parts, Paper Caskets proposes a poetics of the box — as coffin, as prose parameters of the page, as photograph, and as state of mind and body in the face of death. Danielewska (pictured at left) looks beyond grief to see the dead as dynamic places where memory and body collide, where flesh rots and fluid seeps and we de/compose prose-poetry.

Wednesday’s event is free and open to the public and will also feature a guest poet, UWindsor professor Nicole Markotić, reading from her own works. It will get underway at 7 p.m. in the bookstore, located at 1520 Wyandotte Street East.
