Yes the collection of poetry has reached the american market! It Encompasses everything from early childhood, imagery from the west coast of Canada.
“To See through Stained Glass At Night” is a collection of poetry that evolves like a set of letters to a dear friend. Gemma Luescher-Verseckas endears to a broad audience with her love of animals, love of art, and the world around her, a subtle wit and occasional bout of humour. She approaches themes such as artist block, as well as the vulnerability of asking others opinions of your work. Gemma also writes about the taboo of a mental illness, and coming back, then how it comes to affect her family. And lastly she touches on the impact of working in a developing country. Even in her darkest of poems shines a light of strength, hope, and humility.
Heres the first interview online with Fiona McVie- WordPress website:
With a new publisher and new cover, “To See Through Stained Glass at Night” will be newly released end of October making its debut at The Töpferhaus Aarau its first Author signing “Meet and Greet” 31.October 2014, and hopefully coinciding for the opening of “Kunst in Aarau” show ( this is dependent of whether the books are held at customs like last year)
I am pleased the book is released this month as it coincides with the #BeyondStigma campaign For Borderline Personality. I am not ashamed of having to battle with this illness, and there is a whole series of poems dedicated to dealing with the symptoms of this disorder.
This book is available through me, through my publisher Ediciones Camelot, and shortly Amazon.es.
I am proposing a german translation of my work to be completed for summer 2015. As is the publisherEdiciones Camelot wishing to translate the works to Spanish also to be released 2015.
