Poet reads from latest book

Emily Nilsen is coming to Kelowna tonight for a reading of her latest novel

Lake Publishing Society and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC are presenting a Woodshed Reading with poet Emily Nilsen.

Nilsen is launching her new limited edition chapterbook, Place, No Manual and reading from her new book, Otolith, Saturday, June 17 at UBC’s Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre, 969 Raymer Road, at 7 p.m.

Lake Publishing produced 50 copies of Place, No Manual. These were hand-bound and printed on handmade paper created by Kelowna printmaker Laura Widmer. This lovely chapbook will be on sale for $20 at the reading.

Emily Nilsen is a graduate of UBC Okanagan’s MFA program and lives in Nelson. Her debut poetry collection, Otolith, was published this year and takes readers through the lush B.C. wilderness and scrutinizes the many fault lines between human beings and the natural world.

Nilsen was a finalist for the CBC Poetry Prize in 2015 for her poem Meanwhile, which is featured in the book.

Parking for the event is on Raymer Road though anyone with mobility issues is welcome to park on the property. There will be some refreshments, the event is free and open to the public. Note: there are no public washrooms onsite.
