Join the Burnaby Public Library for a special night in celebration of National Poetry Month! The reading will feature three local poets: Sheila Rosen, Harbour Publishing’s own Diane L. Tucker and Rian J. Lloyd.
Rosen’s book Silence, the Breaking Of It, explores her childhood among the interned Japanese in small-town BC. Tucker’s most recent book of poems, Bonsai Love, speaks to the “sensual delicacies of love.” And Lloyd, a young Vancouver poet, was a hit when she read at McGill’s first Writers’ Open Mic in December.
Signed copies of the poets’ books will be available for sale (cash only), and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome, but it’s recommended for people aged 14 and up. It’s free, but there’s limited space, so sign up at www.bpl.bc.ca/events, call 604-299-8955, or drop in to the library at 4595 Albert St.
