Yvonne Blomer - A Celebration of Poetry


Event details

In her four-year term as Victoria’s Poet Laureate, Yvonne Blomer has spoken truth to power and reinforced the crucial role of poetry in public life. From “I Confess We Ate Chocolate” (read for City Hall the day after Trump’s election) to the moving and elegiac “Blue Bridge Blues” (written in concert with fellow writers sharing memories of the Johnson Street Bridge), her work has enriched our understanding of events both near and far.  
Join us for an evening of reading and mingling as we toast Yvonne in the last month of her tenure as Poet Laureate, and our city’s robust poetry community.
