City Centre: A Poetry Reading and Conversation About Life in Urban Vancouver

Vancouver’s poet laureate, Evelyn Lau
in conversation with Daniela Elza

Whether it’s the seemingly perpetual rain outside the window, the cement high-rises on the street, or the mountains in the near distance, Vancouver’s dramatic landscape, mixed architecture, gloomy weather, and diverse population affect each of its artists in different ways.

Join Vancouver’s current poet laureate, Evelyn Lau, for a poetry reading and conversation about how her hometown has shaped her poetry, her writing, and her viewpoints on life.

This lecture is free. Seating is limited, so reserve your seat today.
