Linda Rogers and Kimberly Dark
Jun 22 @ 16:00 – 17:30


Linda’s incandescent stories in Crow Jazz come from tree level, the corvid community, where sex and death are celebrated with mirth and compassion. They have clever crow energy, selecting beak sized twitter-bits from life on earth below, with an eye to the bigger picture. Highly inventive; children, families, crows, and the old, bewitch and astonish the imagination. Improvisation, syncopation; all the jazz words come into word play. The twenty-plus polished tales in Linda Rogers’s quirky and clever short fiction collection are a wild breath of fresh air for literary Canada. Linda is a novelist, essayist, editor and songwriter and past Victoria Poet Laureate and Canadian Peoples Poet. She has published twenty-nine books, appeared in anthologies, and been awarded national and international literary prizes.

Kimberly Dark releases her first collection of poetry LOVE AND ERRORS. Darks work has been enjoyed by audiences in performance and print for more than twenty years. In both personal and fictional accounts, these intimate poems navigate experiences with love(s), gender roles, violence and survival. Kimberly Dark is a writer, sociologist, and raconteur, working to reveal the hidden architecture of everyday life one clever essay, poem, and story at a time. Dark has performed her poetry at hundreds of venues worldwide over the past twenty years. She divides her time between Hawaii, and California.
