MEMORIAL SUITE

Our Books, Poetry / Plays
Author: Jocelyne Dubois Synopsis: Jocelyne Dubois’ poetry is a powerful testament to the constant work of redemption. Unflinching in its depiction of mental illness, it shines its light into the darkest spaces—days with numbness and little hope, the realities of institutions and the people who inhabit them. Yet always it is moving outward to a world of everyday beauty captured, of colour and texture, flowers, food, love, and art. Both lyrical and spare, Memorial Suite is a celebration of hope, the voice of an indomitable spirit.  ~Carmelita McGrath, author of Escape Velocity. Genre: Poetry Price: $20 Published in: 2020 No. of Pages: 82 ISBN: 978-1-990116-01-8
