World Poetry Celebrates Alan Hill!

 

Ariadne’s Notes:

The World Peace Day has had so many entries far from 67 countries  with wonderful poets , musicians and artists, celebrating peace.

Also, in the show were two e-peace poems by : Peace Crusader: Bernice Lever who wrote: ” Here is a Peace Poem from my last book in SMALL ACTS called Peace Gardener  I will do what I can to distribute this poem, making copies for the places I will be at the Sept. 13, Canadian authors monthly meeting , eve. at Alliance for the Arts Bldg., on Howe St. and perhaps 1 or 2  other writer gatherings.

I will print some extra copies for Bowen Island Library, Bowen Is. Art Gallery, our local book store, etc.  Maybe drop one off at our City Hall, too! “
