Susan Blackaby, whom I interviewed a few months back has a local poetry event this coming week:
From the Local Barnes and Noble:
This is a Barnes & Noble Vancouver invitation!
“Strand by strand a spider strings
Her scaffold stalk to stem,
And when a passerby drops by
Midflight, she draws him in…”
Would you like to witness some great poetry for children? Poetry appealing to literature lovers of all ages?
We welcome local poet Susan Blackaby for a reading of her beautifully written and illustrated book Nest, Nook and Cranny. Nest, Nook and Cranny is broken into different sections – Desert, Wetland, Woodland, etc. and contains work that’s visually appealing, with a large variety of metaphors that also provides a great way to learn about our natural world. It’s intended for kids ages 8-12 but would make a good gift to anyone.
This is a rare event for our Poetry Group regulars and for everyone’s children and grandchildren.
