“Lights, Literature & Laughter”“Lights, Literature & Laughter” will launch two books produced with the assistance of students in the editing and publishing practicum course.

Reading to launch books edited by students

Students in Marty Gervais’ practicum course on editing and publishing will celebrate a twofer Friday, launching a pair of books they helped produce.

Authors John B. Lee and John Wing will read from their new works, edited and designed by the members of the class, during “Lights, Literature & Laughter,” 7 p.m. April 4 at the Caboto Club. The event is free and promises refreshments, live music, and other entertainment. 

Lee’s Burning My Father is the third installment of his Black Barns trilogy, a powerful story of internal conflict, personal growth, and family loyalty.

Wing’s poetry collection, Why-Shaped Scars, is honest and funny with shades of darkness—bringing humour to the mundane, beauty to the ordinary and chaos to everyday life.

The books, published by the Windsor-based Black Moss Press, will be available for purchase and signing. They sell for $17 each or get both for $30.
