Hear Bird Calls, Drink Beer

My friend Jane Ledwell is launching her new book, Bird Calls, on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at Upstreet Craft Brewing on Allen Street at 7:00 p.m.

Bird Calls is Jane’s poetic response to the 1854 account of Prince Edward Island by writer Isabella Lucy Bird; Paris may be the gayest city in the world, she wrote, and London the richest, but Charlottetown was “the most gossiping.”

I sit on the Publications Committee of Island Studies Press, which midwifed and is publishing the book; I’m happy to see it spring into life.
