Joanne Epp – Cattail Skyline

Joanne Epp’s second poetry collection “celebrates the tiny marvels and shifting layers of the Prairie landscape.” As a meditation on nature and place, it offers close-ups on particular landscapes – Omand’s Creek in Winnipeg; Star Lake in the boreal forest; a certain stretch of prairie road. By discovering a place for the first time, or finding the new within the familiar, or revisiting once-familiar places after many years, Epp questions how we know a place, how our perception of it changes, and what is impossible to know.
