Centos for this day –lose yourself in BRICOLAGE

Some 100 poetry enthusiasts attended Aeolus House’s launch of JC’s book of centos, BRICOLAGE, on Thursday, September 23.

JC read more than a dozen poems during the online event, including one, unpublished cento that reused lines from various poems in BRICOLAGE in memoriam the child victims of residential schools. “I didn’t know what to do” will remain a one-time only cento of centos,” JC stated.

BRICOLAGE comes out under JC’s pseudonym, A. Garnett Weiss, adopted to give her distance from her lyric or narrative work.

“I thank Allan Briesmaster for publishing my collection. It was an honour to share the program with Blaine Marchand, whose new book, BECOMING HISTORY, also launched that evening.”

JC admitted that gathering her centos into a volume proved challenging but also brought joy. She thanked poets Olive Senior, Keith Garebian and Gregory Betts for providing the fine comments which appear on the book’s back cover. She also acknowledged how grateful she is to fine artist Diana Gubbay for allowing her stunning “Cathedral Forest” collage to grace the book’s front cover. Here’s a link to Ms. Gubbay’s website: https://www.dianagubbay.com
