Abbotsford author Terry Broadworth holds a poetry reading and book launch on Monday, Nov. 2.

The free event, hosted by the Fraser Valley Poets Society, runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Clearbrook Library (32320 George Ferguson Way).

Broadworth’s book A Poets Passion Revisited is a collection of writings and photo art divided into six chapters and celebrating the complexities of life, some places explored and a number of charming characters met along the way.

The book includes Broadworth’s first poem, required for an English class, and some written stories.

Broadworth moved from Victoria to Abbotsford in 1976. She has been writing lyrical poetry since she was a young woman.

She is a member of the Fraser Valley Poets Society and the Abbotsford Arts Council. Broadworth is retired from her job as a licensed practical nurse and recreation programmer who worked with seniors and their families in residential care.
