Meet and Greet For Emily Morrison's Lila Duray: A Collection of Delightfully Delectable Poems
Emily Morrison, author and owner of Elysian by EM, will be at The Garden District Book Shop to sign copies of her latest collection of poems, Lila Duray: A Collection of Delightfully Delectable Poems.
Morrison will be at the shop beginning at 4:00 PM to sign copies and chat with guests. The signing is open to the public and copies of Lila Duray can be purchased from the book shop.
In her new work, Morrison stretches the bounds of imagination and enchantment with humor, empathy, profound truths, and delightful characters. The clever interplay of British illustrator Aileen Bennett’s illustrations draws the reader into the nuances of the words as they come alive in the reader’s mind.
Lila Duray explores the world of Lila Duray, Not So Hopeless Harry, Picky Patricia, Princess Penelope, and Earring and Chestnut. You’ll find stinky feet, gluten-free diets, delicious days, and dreamy dollops of butter. It’s a space where you can go on a safari, stare honesty in the face, become an astronaut, and make your own luck. Engaging the reader with lyrical and descriptive rhyme and evoking creative expression, Lila Duray is meant to be shared and often read aloud.
