Congratulations to our Unpacking the Idea of Home writing contest winner Sandra Cairns for her poem Flight Nearing Big Island. Judges Mary MacDonald and Katherine Fawcett chose the piece for its storytelling about returning home, and the interesting choice of language, cadence and rhythm.

Come hear Sandra read her winning entry, along with our four guest authors at the Travel, Place, Identity: Unpacking the Idea of Home reading event at the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, May 17. Doors at 7pm. Event at 7:30pm.

Moderator Leslie Anthony and authors Pat Ardley, Becky Livingston, Geoff Powter and Frank Wolf have all traveled to remote and distant lands and will explore how travel, place and identity are entwined with the idea of home.
