Local authors Robin A. Sams and Katje van Loon are teaming up for a poetry reading double feature at the Nanaimo Harbourfront Library. Robin A. Sams is celebrating the launch of the second edition of her chapbook Bea and other poems. These poems are inspired by a real-life “Bea” living in New York City. “The Bea poems speak of love, loss, death, and the exquisite art of staying alive,” says Ms. Sams. Katje van Loon is celebrating the re-release of her book glasstown. Eric Paul Shaffer says of glasstown, "Katje van Loon is a runaway who not only clearly sees what she’s fleeing, she definitely knows what she’s seeking: a place where the world makes better sense and writing really can make, enrich, and save your life. Her instruments are ones ‘of soul and sass,’ and her good work will thoroughly kick that part of your anatomy that rhymes with the latter as she wrings your brain with necessary thought. Don’t be glancing around as you read; she’s speaking to you." The authors’ double-reading will take place Sunday, June 24 at 1 p.m. at the Harbourfront Library. The event is free and light refreshments will be available. (katjevanloon)
