Taryn Hubbard’s first collection of poems, Desire Path (Talonbooks $16.95) speaks to the urge to explore home in the suburbs; a place that intersects and overlaps urban and rural areas. Her verses include superblocks, gas stations, fast food joints, six-lane highways and wildfire smoke as experience markers from life stages spanning childhood to motherhood. Hubbard lives with her family in Chilliwack. 9781772012637
