Music and Poetry with Isabella Mori

Date and time: Sat, March 18, 2023, 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM PDT
Location: Historic Joy Kogawa House, 1450 West 64th Avenue, Vancouver

Join us for a late afternoon event with poetry, music, and images!

Inspired by her new chapbook Not So Pretty Haiku, Isabella Mori, together with her jazz musician husband Glenn Mori, will take you on a journey of melancholic poetry, nature images, and melodic improvisation. (Listen to Glenn here.)

Participants will have a chance to write their own poetry.

Ticket price includes a copy of the chapbook and a cocktail — or mocktail.

Also available on Zoom. Sign up on Eventbrite and then email to say you’d prefer to join and Zoom and we’ll email the Zoom link. Zoom participants will receive the chapbook by mail with their ticket order.

Chapbooks will also be available for sale and signing at the event.
