Sixty-Eight poems from native Newfoundlander Linda Blagdon that highlight both the struggles and joys of growing up in Newfoundland. These poems reflect on the nature of family and friends, based on Blagdon’s own experience or stories passed down via the Newfoundland oral tradition. Ranging from humorous to tragic, and from inspirational to personal, ‘Vacant Chairs’ provides a window into the depth of one woman’s experience of Newfoundland culture, tradition, and faith.
Linda Blagdon was born November 25, 1954. She grew up in the small outport of Francois, Newfoundland and currently lives in Windsor, Ontario.
She would like to express her gratitude to all those who have supported her since the publication of this book.
