Come celebrate Pride with Catherine as she reads from Emily & Elsbeth, her newest publication with Caitlin Press. Catherine will also read from her book Under the Influence, and sing a few tunes accompanied by button accordion and guitar.

Emily & Elspeth follows two women and their unique paths to love… and each other. Through poems that flirt with the intersections of desire, art, and commitment, Catherine pieces together Emily and Elspeth’s relationship as playfully as she takes it apart.

Weird, wonderful, and slightly dangerous, this is a queer love story that’s anything but typical.
