Encore Episode: Bookmobile, Ep. 5 — The Trouble With Poets

Category Uncategorised

Naomi WakanIn the final episode of “Bookmobile,” Gabriola Island poet and essayist Naomi Wakan (also Nanaimo’s first Poet Laureate) offers her thoughts on what poetry is and does — or should do. We also get to hear more of her own work than, modestly, she has included before. Music: John Field’s Nocturne No. 5 in Bb, George Gao performing “Galloping Horses” in concert, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops “Cornbread and Butter Beans.” “Now that’s a sensible, everyday topic for a poem,” says Naomi.
