And, oh,
my life, my daughter,
the far away sky is cold
and very blue.

In an expertly woven tale of familial love, betrayal and inheritance, three generations of women come face to face with the legacy left behind by publicly lauded, privately careless poet Phil McDaragh.

Anne Enright’s The Wren, The Wren is a testament to the pull and power of words and a poignant study of the dissonance between public and private personas. Now, she takes the stage to discuss the wonder of poetry, generational trauma and the lasting love of a family. Join her for this exclusive Canadian launch of her new novel.

Moderated by Deborah Dundas.

This event will be followed by a book signing.
