PRISM is excited about the launch of andrea bennett’s ‘Canoodlers’!
Straddling genders, sexualities and social positions, Canoodlers’ candid, direct poems hilariously but harrowingly follow the growth and class leaps of a townie tomboy, rendering the familiar unfamiliar and questioning how relationships function—families, friends, lovers—in contemporary suburban Canadian life.
‘Canoodlers’ launches on Friday May 9th at the Toast Collective, 648 Kingsway, Vancouver. Doors open at 7pm, readings begin at 8pm.
Expect moonshine, cupcakes, and readings from andrea and two fellow poets, Kim Fu and Ben Rawluk. Books will be available for purchase and signing. If you’re lucky, andrea might draw a bird on yours.
