Today is the official release date of Carellin Brooks’s saucy debut poetry collection, Learned! Read on to learn all about this new poetry title and its upcoming launch in Vancouver.
Happy Book Birthday to Learned by Carellin Brooks! Featured on ‘Most Anticipated’ Fall 2022 Poetry lists from 49th Shelf and CBC Books, this follow up to Brooks’s award-winning debut novel One Hundred Days of Rain experiments with poetry as prismatic memoir and means of encountering the fleshier side of life. Negotiating the paradoxical relations between pain and pleasure, mind and body, Learned is at once an adventure through London’s lesser-known corners and a philosophical investigation into what it means to discover oneself through trial.
See the video below for an introduction and reading from the author!
