Please join Tightrope Books and Ben McNally Books for an in-store poetry reading featuring author Carla Drysdale from 5:00-7:00pm. Thursday, November 5, 2009.

Carla Drysdale’s poems in Little Venus challenge the reader, tackling the hard subjects of child abuse, sexual exploitation and the failure of some families. The character of Little Venus runs through the poems burning with rage and want in an incendiary chant that the reader can’t ignore. Little Venus is a haunting collection that will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.

Ben McNally Books is located at 366 Bay Street Toronto, ON M5H 4B2
