Auguries Celebrated During National Poetry Month

The theme for National Poetry Month 2019 is “Celebrate nature with poetry”. Clea’s collection, Auguries, is included on a reading list posted by the League of Canadian Poets on to “spotlight some outstanding Canadian poetry collections that tackle the broad theme of nature out of love, curiosity, and necessity. These collections explore the ways that nature informs our everyday lives and creates our material conditions. They focus on science, environmentalism, anti-colonial activism, field studies, body politics, and appreciation for the natural world—however we have access to it in our everyday lives. From a fire tower in Alberta, to a carpenter’s site, to the great Canadian North, these collections and poets help paint a complex picture of Canada’s, and the wider world’s, varied natural surroundings.” Thanks League of Canadian Poets and!
