I hope you’ll be able to attend my Surrey Poet Laureate Farewell, next Friday October 12. There will be an Open Mic and an exhibit of teen chapbooks, generously supported by Surrey’s Cultural Grant – Details below:Update: Thank you to all who came out to this event; here are a few photos to recap the night and my writer’s journey as Surrey Poet Laureate:
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Vancouver and Surrey launch of Listening to the Bees. Mark and I are gearing up for the next launch event in Victoria on May 25 at the Fortune Gallery. Hope you can make it!
If you can’t make it to the Vancouver launch for Listening to the Bees, my latest collaboration with Mark Winston, we’ll also be launching the book at the Surrey City Centre Library on May 11!
“Listening to the Bees is a collaboration between two writers who share a common passion for bees and for language. It combines Winston’s personal essays based on thirty years as a scientist in the field with the honey bee and Saklikar’s poems created in response to a rich scientific archive.”
