We’re excited to announce the publication of 1996 (House of Anansi Press, 2013) by Sara Peters (Poetry 2008). Her publisher describes the collection as “a book about obsessions — about desire, violence, sex, beauty, and cruelty, about how they lace through our days, leaving us changed.” Robert Pinsky has called the book “deeper than mere darkness.”
Sara Peters was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. She completed her MFA at Boston University in 2008, and was a Stegner Fellow in poetry at Stanford University from 2010 to 2012. Her poems have appeared in Poetry Daily, The Threepenny Review, and The Walrus. She lives in Toronto.
