Event Description

Marilyn Bowering is a poet, novelist and librettist with deep roots in Victoria. Her work has been short-listed for the world-wide Orange Prize, and awarded the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize and the Pat Lowther, Dorothy Livesay, and Gwendolyn McEwen poetry prizes. Her new book of poems, What Is Long Past Occurs in Full Light, weaves meditations on absences and loss with personal, local and cultural memories. The poems flourish with transformative interconnections between literature, ecology, civilization, history and personal critique.

Valentina Cambiazo was born in Santiago, Chile and has lived in Canada since the age of twelve. She has also lived in Spain, France, and the US. Her travels have taken her to eastern Canada, Chile, Mexico, and Europe. She now lives and works in Victoria. Her first novel, Dark Spirit, is set in 14th century France. She is currently working on a travel memoir entitled Into the Heart of Darkness: Six Harrowing Months in the South of France.

The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. Between 6:45 and 7:00, put your name in the hat to read at open mic. Planet Earth Poetry acknowledges with respect that we read and write on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
