Post-modern poet to read in Abbotsford

The poetry reading begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Clearbrook Library (32320 George Ferguson Way) in Abbotsford.

The next Blue Moon Reading Series event is set for June 11.

The poetry reading begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Clearbrook Library (32320 George Ferguson Way) and is being presented by the library and the  Poets Potpourri Society of Abbotsford.

The reading begins with an  open mic.

This month’s special guest is Emily Isaacson, a 36-year-old Canadian poet who has written more than 1,200 poems.

At the reading she is launching her third book, The Sunken Garden.

Isaacson has written a daily blog of poetry for more than six months, and her Poem of the Day is now a published book for her readers to enjoy.

Her post-modern poetry is colourful, lyrical and even magical in its break from realism.

The topics of her poems are varied, but a common theme is her comparison of nature to human nature, and a discourse back and forth between the naturalist and the philosopher.

Her use of classic forms such as rhyme schemes, syllabic poems and English sonnets prevail over free verse.

Isaacson served on the board of the Mission Arts Council for three years, and has a vested interest in artists.

She graduated from Bastyr University in 1999, and is the founder and director of the Emily Isaacson Institute, and has worked to create a nutrition program for the First Nations People as well as opening the Health and Wellness Clinic for quality nutrition care in Abbotsford.

She has exhibited as a solo artist at the MAC gallery in Mission.
