The Frangible Hour and The White Handkerchief and other stories
Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 1 p.m.
Library (1275 Rue du Bois)
Free - no reservation required

The Frangible Hour by Catherine, Chandler
The poems in Catherine Chandler's The Frangible Hour are woven together like a tapestry, balanced between loss and hope. Though many of the poems are parts of a series, everything feels linked: for
example, in poems like "For Melina, 8, Sleeping," the poet explores one perfect, beautiful moment of innocence, a child's belief in Santa. The narrator, though, can't leave the scene before acknowledging that the world will eventually betray that the world is not so magical. But The Frangible Hour looks as unflinchingly at the joy as the sorrow: Chandler forces herself towards finding the good "in what [she's] got."

The White Handkerchief and other stories, by Serge Sabourin
These stories were first told to friends, later to a wider audience. At one such story-telling session we taped them and spent the next two years writing them down. What delights me about the stories is  the humanity that comes across: the light, humourous, respectful account of living with Indian folk for a while, and, how easy it is to attach yourself to them.
