Carla Funk Reading at Planet Earth Poetry

On April 15, 2016, Jeanette Lynes and Carla Funk are the featured poets at Planet Earth Poetry's Friday reading.

Carla Funk will be reading from her latest book of poetry, Gloryland.

Date: April 15, 2016

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Hillside Coffee and Tea

Address: 1633 Hillside Ave (across from Bolen Books), Victoria, B.C.

Carla Funk, in her fifth book of poetry, illuminates the small and marvelous marginalia of earth, like the glistening trail of a snail en route, and looks prophetically to the not-so-distant future where cities burn and the body falls to ruin. A meditation on endings, intermingling wonder and praise with question and elegy, Gloryland offers poems for an apocalyptic age.

Born and raised in Vanderhoof, B.C., one of the earliest Mennonite settlements in the province, Carla Funk now lives and teaches writing in Victoria, where she served as the city’s inaugural poet laureate from 2006-2008. Her previous books of poetry include The Sewing Room and Apologetic.
