Victoria poet Lorne Daniel will be at The Book Man on March 10 at 2 p.m., reading from selected poems from Drawing Back to Take a Running Jump at The Book Man’s Chilliwack Branch.
As a young poet in the 1970s and 80s, Daniel helped define the emerging western Canadian poetry scene through his own poetry and editing of the periodical Canada Goose and the Ride Off Any Horizon anthology series.
His new book brings together the best of his early work. These are clear and perceptive poems on relationships, the wonders of children, the mysteries of the heart and the comfort of place.
Copies of Drawing Back to Take a Running Jump can be purchased after the poetry reading for $18. Refreshments will be served.
