Julie Emerson at Lunch Poems @ SFU, 12 noon, Wed. March 16
Julie will be reading from Twenty Seven Stings, her recent volume of poetry exploring the role of women in warfare, of which the Vancouver Sun said “With Canada still mired down in the blood of Syria and every news hour scarlet with spilled blood somewhere, we need poets like Emerson, and books like Twenty Seven Stings. Read this one even if you seldom read poetry.”
Julie will be reading with ryan fitzpatrick in the Teck galllery at SFU’s downtown Vancouver campus at 515 W. Hastings at 12 pm.
If you can’t attend, or can but can’t get enough Twenty Seven Stings, you can hear Julie speak about the book with its illustrator Roxanna Bikadoroff in episode two of our podcast.
