Event Description

Jónína Kirton is a Métis/Icelandic poet/author and facilitator. Born in Treaty One (Portage la Prairie, Manitoba) she currently lives in the unceded territory of the Musqueam, SKwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh. Kirton received the 2016 Vancouver’s Mayor’s Arts Award for an Emerging Artist in the Literary Arts category. She was sixty when she published her first collection of poetry with Talonbooks in 2015. Much to her delight, page as bone ~ ink as blood, has received some critical acclaim. Two years later she brought us her second collection, An Honest Woman, again with Talonbooks. The book was a finalist in the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize.

Once a Director for Social Change Projects in Victoria and Israel, Dvora Levin now devotes herself to poetry. She has published six collections of her own work: To Bite The Blue Apple, Sharav, Ragged Light (all with Ekstasis Editions) and a unique hand-bound book, Zeroing In On Nothing. Her newest collections are Windblown & Waving (True Mint Blueprints) and Shared Motion: Science & Spirituality (Ekstasis Editions), both published in the spring, 2018.

The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. The evening begins at 7:30 with an open mic, followed by a featured reader(s). Planet Earth Poetry is located at Hillside Coffee and Tea, 1633 Hillside Ave (across from Bolen Books). Between 7 and 7:15, put your name in the hat to read at open mic.
