Event Description

Today Vancouver’s outgoing Poet Laureate Rachel Rose shares a phenomenal project from her tenure in the role. Sustenance: Writers from BC and Beyond on the Subject of Food brings to the table some of Canada’s best contemporary writers, celebrating all that’s unique about Vancouver’s literary and culinary scene. Join this incredible lineup for an afternoon of live music from The Pazific, led by Seattle-based songwriting duo Alex and Jefferson Rose, snacks and readings on subjects as diverse as exile, hunger, food scarcity, bulimia, fat shaming, urban beekeeping, rural hunting, community gardening, foraging, feeding a baby, waitressing, dumpster diving, butchering, eating vegan, and reflections on family feast days. This is an afternoon to eat, drink and be merry, and to celebrate Rachel’s exceptional contribution to the community.
