Hart Rouge, a new collection of poetry and short prose from local author Rob Rolfe with a Foreword by Andrew Armitage, will be released at 7:00pm Tuesday October 17 at The Ginger Press in downtown Owen Sound. Special guest Larry Jensen will accompany Rob at the launch with songs the two wrote during their recent tenure as Owen Sound's Poets Laureate.

In his Foreword, Andrew Armitage writes: "Hart Rouge is a celebration of this old port on the Great Lakes, and  the Metis who made a home in Mudtown years before Owen Sound was born. It wakes up the echoes of the Sydenham Valley for me, making me realize how much Owen Sound's history -- both its hidden past and more modern life -- means. Rob Rolfe is a poet supreme."

Autographed copies of Hart Rouge ($18.95) can be reserved at 376-4233 if you are unable to attend the launch.
