World Poetry Celebrates Cornelia Hoogland from Hornby Island!







Ariadne’s Notes:  The World Poetry CafĂ© was honoured to  welcome the talented Cornelia Hoogland  with her new book Trailer Park Elegy (Harbour, 2017, Nightwood Editions)  on October 12, CFRO, 100.5 FM or listen live at 1:10 pm , PST in archives at www.

A fascinating interview about  death and loss which touches us all. Trailer Park Elegy is a moving tribute to her brother. The interview also mentioned how hard it is to spend time with those we love due to the busyness of everyday life.  Adding to the book is the flavor of the Gulf Islands including the specialness of island living in BC, Canada. A book well worth reading!
