Sudbury poet Kim Fahner continues her lifelong look at the trees and birds and water of northern Ontario in her fifth poetry collection, THESE WINGS. From those who labour in the mining underworld to the vulnerable lives we construct above them, Fahner walks us to the thin place between aching and soaring, where something holy is glimpsed between people, and between natural and created worlds. "You cannot walk it out, this love. You cannot push it out through the soles of your feet, urging it down // into the earth, into hidden labyrinths of nickel and copper. It begs you to carry it, tired and weary."

Kim Fahner was the fourth poet laureate of the City of Greater Sudbury (2016-18), and was the first woman to be appointed to the role. She has published four volumes of poetry, including You Must Imagine the Cold (Scrivener Press, 1997), braille on water (Penumbra Press, 2001), The Narcoleptic Madonna (Penumbra Press, 2012), and Some Other Sky (Black Moss Press, 2017). She is also a playwright and a novelist.

Monica Kidd is a writer, physician, printer, and partner in Pedlar Press. She has published three collections of poetry with Gaspereau Press (Acualities, 2008; Handfuls of Bone, 2011; The Year of Our Beautiful Exile, 2015). She has also published two novels and a book of non-fiction, and is a former internationally-recognized journalist with CBC.
