Signature Editions Summer Poetry Launch with Rona Shaffran, Michael Mirolla and David Elkins

Last Thursday, Librairie Drawn and Quarterly was pleased to host an evening of poetry with Signature Editions authors Rona Shaffran, Michael Mirolla and David Elkins who read from their recent works.


The M.C. of the evening was Montreal author Antonio D'Alfonso of Guernica Editions.


Following Antonio's introductions, Rona Shaffran took the stage, reading from her book Ignite. Not shying away from the sensuous, Rona's poetry steamed up the already hot summer night!


Next up was Michael Mirolla reading from The House on 14th Avenue. Particularly poignant were his highly personal poems about his "quasi-centenarian" father, which managed to be both amusing and touching simultaneously.


Next, David Elkins took the stage. Evidently a man of many talents, he opened with a mean E.E.  Cummings impersonation which had the audience in stitches, before launching into his own work from The Unseen World

After a brief intermission, all three authors read for a second time, and then signed copies of their respective books. Refreshments were then enjoyed by all!
