Meet poet Thomas Leduc at the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library!

On Saturday July 27 2019, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at the James L. McIntyre Centennial Library, 50 East Street, Thomas will share from his debut collection of poetry, Slagflower: Poems Unearthed from a Mining Town. Copies of the book will be available for signing and purchase for $21.

The poems in Slagflower capture a city struggling to grow beyond its past and become more than just a mining town, while reflecting the internal human conflict to be more than family history, more than a past.

Thomas is the descendant of four generations of miners and works at an industrial supply company in Sudbury. His poetry and writing has appeared in anthologies and magazines in Canada and the U.S.. Thomas was Poet Laureate of the City of Greater Sudbury between 2014 and 2016. He is President of the Sudbury Writers' Guild. He lives in Sudbury with his wife and two children.

Drop by the library to hear from this compelling collection of poetry and meet the author!
