Ariadne’s Notes: The World Poetry Cafe radio show on CFRO 100.5 FM welcomed Anita Lo in a special book launch where she also kindly acted as co-host and read the poem of Mr. Hongri Yuan , a well known folk poet from China in Mandarin as well as poems from her new book. A lovely, gracious lady who has a lot to offer.
Anita Lo’s lyric voice is informed by a lovely musicality. In these poems she considers kindness, community and connection through ideas of both the natural world and her neighborhood in Vancouver, Canada. It’s rare for a poet to write in two languages and here Lo displays sensitivity and a simple elegance in both.”
Elee Kraljii Gardiner, author of serpentine loop and Trauma Head.
“Anita loves poetry and is passionately fond of music. Poetry and music together are her two wings, which allow her to gracefully and tastefully float in a lovely blossoming garden of literary arts, rather like a diligent honeybee seeking to collect a diversity of nectar’s.
This book is the first jar of nectar collected by Anita, natural, fragrant and sweet. We anxiously look forward to the future appearance of even more remarkably rich publications.”
William Chan, President, The Chinese Canadian Writers’ Association
