On Friday, April 10th at 7pm Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host West Kootenay author and activist K.L. Kivi for the launch of her newest book. Unknown Hum is Kivi’s first collection of poetry but the themes of her poems will resonate with those familiar with her work. Unknown Hum explores the terrain of living a mindful life passionately engaged with the natural world and activist politics.
“If my novels rise from my emotional self and my creative documentary from my mind, my poetry reflects on the spiritual earth from which all my life’s work grows,” says Kivi. “I will read poems as well as speak to the ways in which we can flourish as human beings in these challenging times.” Kivi would like to reassure the poetry-shy that her poems are highly accessible.
Kivi is well-known throughout the Kootenays for her work on the Jumbo Wild! campaign, her work with the Sinixt Nation on issues of self-determination, as the editor and publisher at Maa Press and as the author of eight books including The Inner Green , the novel Letter from Lubumbashi and the anthology The Purcell Suite.
Kivis will co-present with Pemberton based author Katherine Fawcett (Link here to more information)
