Launch of Stephen Symons’s Landscapes of Light and Loss!
“The poems in this collection bear witness with the crisp attention of a Robert Capa photograph. These ecosystems, each with their own by-laws … hold together such a curious, nearly impossible balance in his new book.”
– David Keplinger, author of Another City (Milkweed Editions, 2018)

Are you looking to adopt a dog? Support a worthy cause? Looking for a book with beautiful portraits of rescue dogs? Well…..look no further!
As animal lovers we at XNA are proud to support this amazing project.
Mutts the Book
Mutts is a coffee table book of beautiful rescue dog portraits and their inspirational stories which will be sold to raise funds for two doggy charities.
Quirky, loving, strong, spirited, loyal and special….mixed breed dogs boast all of these qualities and more. Yet, they are sadly overlooked because too many people perceive them as ordinary and somehow inferior to pure breed dogs.
The truth is that animal shelters are bursting at the seams with these unique animals but they are often the last choice to be adopted because they don’t fall into a specific breed category.
‘Mutts’ will showcase the incredible variety and beauty of mixed breed dogs and offer readers a glimpse into their great personalities, loving natures and incredible stories of second chances.
No dog lover’s coffee table will be complete without it.
To support this cause and ensure that ‘Mutts’ is available in bookstores, please see the link below.
There is something VERY exciting happening at Love Books on Saturday…..Florence and Watson and The Sugarbush Mouse will be read by none other than the hilarious Rob Van Vuuren.
Tell your friends and family and make sure you don’t miss out on this fun filled morning.
