Poetry is the vehicle for range of themes from a reading and book signing at Prince Rupert Library tonight
The Prince Rupert Library makes for the natural venue for a poetry reading tonight, as Sarah de Leeuw brings her work from Outside America to life as she explores a range of themes that chart the course through her 99 pages of poetry, the latest of her growing library of projects.
Culled from travels on both sides of the Canadian/American border, Outside America channels elements of grief, loss, and aging as well as taking a look at technological frustrations, environmental issues and themes of nationalism.
The award winning Canadian writer, who lives in Prince George has published a number of books since her first work of 2004.
Her 2017 book Where it Hurts, was a finalist for the Governor Generals Literary Award for Non Fiction and a finalist for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Book BC Prize.
A thumbnail sketch of the book available here, offers a wider glimpse of some of the directions that the Poetry reading will follow starting at 7PM this evening.
The author will also sign copies of her book following this evenings presentation, with copies available locally at Eddies News.
