Mark your calendars for a reading and slideshow with local poet and artist Pierre Coupey next Wednesday, June 6. This will close our first season of the NVCL Local Author Series and I have a feeling it’s going to be popular, so make sure you get here early!
Pierre was a founding co-editor of The Georgia Straight and founding editor of The Capilano Review. His artwork has received grants from the Conseil des Arts du Québec, the Canada Council, and the BC Arts Council. He has published nine books of poetry/chapbooks/catalogues, and exhibited in Canada and abroad. He will read from his selected poems in progress, show slides of selected work, and discuss the relationship between poetics and paintings.
