The book launch of Jagjeet Sharma's latest collection of poetry - Under a Maple Tree - book launch was a fun filled success!
Under a Maple Tree is a mixed and random collection of poetry, a byproduct of the Covid-19 pandemic; sometimes its cure worse than the disease, causing devastation and destruction, leaving our lives in the wake of division and a pendulum of emotions.
Once a peaceful country, post-Covid Canada has found itself in a conundrum of incongruities and divisions, its very unity and stability in question; socially, politically, and economically.
A random collection of social and political discourse put in poetic form - a reflection of our times - the news stories of 2022 – Covid-19 - the truckers convoy – the neglect and abuse of our elders in our long term care facilities - the horrific findings of our residential schools. This collection is a continuation of the author's journey and journalistic poetry.
And as we exit this pandemic as a society, as we begin collecting our wits, as the shell shock abates and healing can slowly commence, Under a Maple Tree is the beginning of this journey, a time when we can begin to digest and reflect upon these past tumultuous years.
There was great food and snacks, a few sample readings from the poetry collection. And official ribbon cutting (with the help of the author's granddaughters!) and cake!
Now this title is available across numerous electronic platforms - Amazon, Apple ibooks, Kobo, Scribd, Thalia.de, Smashwords, Indigo, Angus & Robertson, Mondadori, Vivlio, and coming soon to the new Palace Marketplace!
