Emerson is the author of Twenty Seven Stings, an illustrated (by Roxanna Bikadoroff) collection of “carefully crafted, lapidary” poems about women in wars throughout history, which Tom Sandborn in the Vancouver Sun says you should “read … even if you seldom read poetry.”
The event is being billed as An Intimate Evening with Vancouver Poets. Emerson will be sharing the “stage” with Evelyn Lau, Fred Wah, and Elee Kraljii Gardiner. This will fill up very quickly — it’s far too much poetic excellent for one room — so arrive early to guarantee admission.
