Join us November 3rd in the Massy Gallery to celebrate the launch of Tegera from Purple Fire Publications!
By Terriann Walling, Ramazan Saral, & George Gerard, with illustrations by Yaren Gezer, Tegera is a collection of collaborative poems and prose written by three individuals who live on different parts of the planet. As you journey through the book, you will realize that Tegera is not a classical poem book. The reader becomes a traveler and an active participant in the process of timelessness. You have the freedom to follow APEƩ, TaW, or GeoS through the seven realms of Tegera. You can choose to read the book linearly, or to choose your own path through Land, Forest, Shore, Sea, Mountain/Fire, Air/Space, and The Unknown. With complimentary celestial art created by the Turkish artist Yaren Gezer, this book will transport you to where you need to be.
This event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tseil-Waututh Nations.
Massy Books' downstairs event space is accessible! You can view the floorplan here: http://www.massybooks.com/accessibility/
Please feel free to reach out with any inquiries.
The event is all-ages, but we will have beer and wine available for purchase.
Join co-authors George Gerard and Terriann Walling for the launch of Tegera (Purple Fire Publications).
In the circular world of Tegera, three travellers of timelessness meet. Through poetry, prose, and stories they flow between seven realms of existence, all illustrating that time and space are but an illusion and that fully existing involves freeing oneself from these restraints. The book contains complimentary celestial art created by the Turkish artist Yaren Gezer.
Come to Green Apple Books on Clement street on Sunday, October 7th at 7:00 p.m. to welcome Terriann Walling and George Gerard as they read from their newest poetry book called Tegera. The cook was made in collaboration with Ramazan Saral, from Turkey. With original art by Turkish artist, Yaren Gezer.
