Book Launch: Jim Olwell ‘Pensions’
Please join us as Jim Olwell launches his new poetry collection, Pensions! We will have a reading from Jim, and books will be available for sale and signing. About the collection: In these seventeen poems, Jim Olwell takes readers into the ballparks and boxing gyms of his early years in the Bronx, and the community centres of Montreal where he has worked for the past forty years. We meet lost boys and inspirational teachers, great artists (Beckett, Rodin, O’Neill), strangers struggling through their days without pensions—and necessarily, life and love’s natural departures.
