Cascadia Poetics Lab board member Adelia MacWilliam is a poet whose family settled on Salt Spring Island in the 1850s. Adelia has struggled with the settler amnesia and is part of what promises to be a fascinating talk on Saturday, November 26, 2022 at 2pm at the Salt Spring Library. We hope to see you there.

    Sounds so interesting. Too bad it can’t also be zoomed for us far away folks.

    I would love to be there and listen. I remember Salt Spring from my childhood and I put it into my novel – Alberta & the Spark. One day – I need to go back up there and see that it gets out and read on the Island. I would be happy to mail a copy to Adelia MacWilliam.

    I would drive up and ferry over if my passport hadn’t been stolen.

    Of course all poets are welcome here at my house in Astoria Oregon!
