The City of Windsor, through the Poet Laureate & Storytellers Program, is gearing up for the upcoming launch of the fifth book in the City’s South Shore Collections series, In the Middle Space. The South Shore Collection books help capture, preserve and share Windsor’s stories with the community – one of the primary goals of the program.
The book is being published by Windsor’s Black Moss Press, in partnership with the City of Windsor and the University of Windsor’s Editing & Publishing Practicum program. Additional support for the publication comes from the Canada Council for the Arts and Museum Windsor.
Thirteen well-known local authors are featured in the collection. They are: Barry Brodie, Carlinda D’Alimonte, Irene Moore Davis, Peter Hrastovec, Maya Jessop, Dorothy Mahoney, Christopher Lawrence Menard, Mary Ann Mulhern, Rawand Mustafa, André Narbonne, Vanessa Shields, Laurie Smith and Teajai Travis.
