For the holidays, Kegedonce Press is offering specially-priced book bundles for the poetry lovers on your list!
Kegedonce Press has long had a deep love of poetry. We have published thirty titles by Indigenous poets from across the territories of Canada. For the holiday season we are offering two special book bundles, pairs of poetry books that fit well together, at a special price. The perfect gift for any poetry lover!
This, the first of two bundles, pairs Slam Coalkan Performance Poetry with A Moon Made of Copper. Both cross territories–those of Canada and of the continents of the Americas–both explore themes of Indigenous experience in colonial contexts as well as strength and survivance.
Slam Coalkan Performance Poetry: The Condor and the Eagle Meet is a remarkable cross-border collaboration of Indigenous slam poets from North and South America. Its sub-title refers to an ancient prophecy which foretells a time when the Condor of the south will share the skies with the Eagle of the North and there will be balance in the world. In 2021, the poets performed at the Festival of the Peripheries Festival in Rio de Janeiro and Toronto International Festival of Authors in Toronto. Their poems were gathered into this remarkable,digitally-enhanced anthology, which includes QR codes to link readers with the poets’ festival performances. From these pages the poets sing their hopes and their dreams. These are the voices of resistance, voices that speak out against the evils of colonialism, racism, transphobia, and genocide. Voices that cry, shout, whisper and roar passionate messages to the world.
A Moon Made of Copper is a collection of non-fiction poems that look at the continual maturing and growth of a human being. The poems were written as the author, Chris Bose, toured across Canada. They capture his experiences meeting people, wandering different cities, and getting into adventures and mis-adventures. A Moon Made of Copper is a poetic journey through pain and loss, and ultimately towards healing.
This special holiday book bundle is available at 50% off until December 31, 2022.
