Book Launch: Whispers of Mermaids and Wonderful Things

Whispers of MermaidsWe’re celebrating the launch of Whispers of Mermaids and Wonderful Things: Atlantic Canadian Poetry and Verse for Children, edited by Sheree Fitch and Anne Hunt (Nimbus, 2017).

Harriet Irving Library | Thursday, September 21, 4:00 pm | Free!

Whispers of Mermaids and Wonderful Things reflects years of research and gathering. While the tradition of poetry for children and young adults is strong in Canada’s Atlantic region, the poems themselves are scattered over years and volumes and most have been out of print for a long while. These poems have long needed careful curation and editing. That is exactly what Fitch and Hunt have done in this landmark anthology. With work beginning in the Eileen Wallace Children’s Literature Collection at UNB and extending well beyond, Sheree and Anne have not only unearthed a rich, engaging, and relevant poetic tradition and brought it forward for a new generation of children, they have created new communities of poets and poetry along the way. The volume, though historical in scope, is as fresh as one would hope it to be with many new and exciting voices represented.
