Nordic Moon Press announces the US Book Launch for David de Young's first collection of poetry, A FLASH OF INSIGHT AND OTHER POEMS at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis on Tuesday, April 24, 7 p.m., along with Nordic Roots author Kari Tauring and musical guest Ben Connelly.

As part of the US launch of the book, de Young will make his first visit to Minneapolis in over 5 years to present poems from the collection as well as new poems and commentary. "I'm excited to share this work in the city where I lived for 25 years," said de Young, "but I'm also excited just to return and see dearly-missed friends and old colleagues. The BLB was a favorite entertainment venue when I lived in Minneapolis, so I am thrilled to hold our launch party there."

The early evening program will conclude with a social hour and book signing. Attendees will get $6 off the price of the book with their paid admission. This event is jointly sponsored by Nordic Moon Press and

"In his collection of poetry that spans over three decades, de Young deftly reconstructs a captivating and familiar universe populated with keen at times, whimsical insights on love, loss, pain, delight, and personal growth." - Michael Leggs, author of Advance the Engine Summer
