Thu, Apr 25 2019, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Shane Neilson launches his new book of poetry, New Brunswick, on Thursday, April 25, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, at The Bookshelf. He'll be joined be Guelph poet Allison LaSorda and former Guelph poet, John Nyman.

In this latest collection, Shane Neilson surveys his homeland, mapping the many contours of history—political, social, personal, and spiritual—and considering the ways we shape and are shaped by the land. Formally inventive and linguistically rich, New Brunswick grapples with the weight of legacies both political and familial, charting both the province and the heart.
