ON TOUR: BC Book Prizes Northern Leg

We have met so many amazing kids from Kitimaat all the way to Quesnel. Everyone has interesting questions and thoughts to share. Shout outs to Roberta Morris and Arzinelly Cometa at Smithers Secondary who are studying hard for their provincials. And what a pleasure it was to meet Savannah Taylor who lived in Inuvik the same time I did and who remembered the dogs from the dog-sledding team. Duchess Park in Prince George was beautiful: all pine tree-hued blue wood, lovely library, theatre, gym. The walls reminded me of the Richmond Oval and I wondered if y’all thought the same if you watched speed-skating. Go BC and blue-hued pine! The students were intense:) Extremely intelligent questions: I felt like I was in university—did I hear the word “discourse?” Michael and i could have spent a good three hours chatting with many of the students. Shout out to Nicole Jerick who has published with The Claremont Review, can’t wait to get the copy. Then onward to Quesnel Junior High, a grade 8/9 school. We knew right away when we walked into the arty painted locker-ed halls that this was a school with creativity a-buzz. The students were friendly and gathered in a circle of chairs or on the floor in front of us. What a warmth was in the room: sun beaming through the library solarium and students eager to tell us about their work. And what an incredible amount of ideas and writing and art and poems. I can’t wait to see the collaborative zine. And the Theatre Riot…shhhh….I know you can do it:)

I’m folding myself up and squashing myself in your pocket for a few days—so envious of those that get to be brightened by your loveliness, can’t stop smiling when I read your words! xoxoxo
