Poetry & Music
Sunday October 28, 2pm – 3pm
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, 578 Carrall

In the charmed setting of the Classical Chinese Garden, the Festival is delighted to present a jewel of an afternoon concert with Evelyn Lau, Jim Wong-Chu and Silk Road Music. Vancouver’s Poet Laureate, Evelyn Lau’s next collection, A Grain of Rice, will be published later this fall. Joining Evelyn is poet, editor and historian Jim Wong-Chu. Jim is a founding member of the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop, and his book Chinatown Ghosts was the first poetry book published by an Asian Canadian writer. Qiu Xia He and Andre Thibault are Silk Road Music, an award-winning duo that has taken Chinese-Western musical collaboration to a new level; their music will compliment the words of Evelyn and Jim.

This event was on Day 5 of  the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
