The Rules of the Kindgom

The Perth & District Union Library is pleased to be hosting author and poet Julie Paul for a reading and book signing on Friday, August 10th, 2018, at 2 p.m. at 30 Herriott Street, Perth.

Julie, originally from Lanark Village and now living in Victoria, BC, is the author of three books: two short story collections and her latest release, a poetry collection, called “The Rules of the Kingdom” (McGill-Queens University Press). Spanning in subject matter from pioneers to puberty, motherhood to marriage—even poems about the Lanark Fire—”The Rules of the Kingdom” has received excellent reviews, and was a finalist for both the 2018 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize and 2018 The Gerald Lampert Memorial Prize.

Backbeat Books & Music will be offering books for sale.
