Galiano Island Library presents:
Book Launch: Love of the Salish Sea Islands – New Essays, Memoirs and Poems by 40 Island Writers
Meet the Authors
Author Steven Ross Smith joined by special guests Cathy Ford and Arlene Paré, authors from Mayne Island.
Stephen Ross Smith, over three decades, has lived part-time in a cabin on Galiano Island. Five years ago he purchased a kayak to ply the waters around the island, and to write about the experiences. He has published the poetic series fluttertongue, now six books long. He is also the 2019 Banff Poet Laureate.
The event will discuss the new book “Love of the Salish Sea Islands – New Essays, Memoirs and Poems by 40 Island Writers“, edited by Mona Fertig (2019). “A treasury of writing celebrating the beauty, community, and importance of our archipelagos. Forty skilled island writers share their love of the many islands in the Salish Sea off British Columbia’s coast through passionate, eclectic and reflective-new and previously unpublished-essays, memoirs and poems.” 49thshelf.com
