Professor Loren Wilkinson will be reading from Imago Mundi, his newly published poetry collection on Jan. 12, 4:00 –5:30 pm. 

For decades, Loren has been well known as a writer, teacher, and pioneer of the Christian environmentalism movement. Loren’s poetry, until now, has been less known. In Imago Mundi, his first published collection, Loren looks deeply into the geography of southwestern B.C., drawing wisdom from tides, beaches, seals, and farm equipment. He demonstrates a gift for revealing, as Eugene Peterson puts it, “the sounds and rhythms and metaphors that keep us alert to the ‘Word made flesh.’” 

A number of Loren’s poems are featured in Loren and Iwan Russell-Jones documentary, Making Peace with Creation, which is showing shortly after the reading at 7:00 pm. More information on the documentary here.
