Julie Emerson reading at Lunch Poems


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.
