Jamella Hagen on Tour!


Posted: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 10:56pm

You won't want to miss the chance to see Nightwood's Jamella Hagen as she sets out on a cross-country reading tour to promote her debut poetry book, Kerosene. Jamella will be in Toronto, Cobourg, St. Catharines, Moose Jaw, Regina, Calgary, Kelowna, Hazelton, Gibsons, Nanaimo, Vancouver and Victoria.

Patterned on Jamella's own experience, Kerosene follows the story of a young woman's life, encompassing the beauty and harshness of a childhood spent in the wilderness of Northern BC, the difficult process of adapting to city life, a period of extensive travel in South America, and her eventual return to the north. From a position of experience, the poet is able to contemplate the events of her lifetime with a thoughtful and sometimes gently ironic voice.
