Book Tour: Ann Eriksson and Gary Geddes

This Friday we have a double book launch from a pair of authors who have something important in common, they’re married.

Ann Eriksson and her husband, fellow writer Gary Geddes, are embarking on a cross-Canada book tour this fall, covering over twenty stops from Vancouver, B.C., to Halifax, N.S., in two months.

Both members of this husband-and-wife team have released new books this year. Eriksson’s High Clear Bell of Morning (Douglas & McIntyre, $22.95) is an elegant, affecting novel about a family struggling to cope when the daughter, Ruby, develops schizophrenia. Geddes’ What Does a House Want? (Red Hen Press, $19.95) is a collection of selected poems from his highly acclaimed poetic career.

Meet Ann and Gary in the Program Room at 7pm Friday.
