Hot Ticket: Lisa Moore & Michael Crummey book launch – June 7

Lisa Moore has had a good year. Her second novel February, which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, was selected as the 2013 Canada Reads winner. And now, the St. John’s-based author is poised to release her third novel, which follows the Moore pattern of pithy titles. It’s called Caught, and it’s about a prison escapee who embarks on an epic pot-smuggling scheme. We’re not sure if the title is a spoiler or not. At the same launch, Michael Crummey will be debuting a new book of poetry called Under The Keel. It seems like it’s a pretty big deal. The double launch will also feature music by singer-songwriter duo The Blue Drop. Check it out at Christina Parker Gallery at 50 Water Street at 7pm.
