The Book Arts Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is delighted to partner with MUN Botanical Garden to host a joint-presentation by renowned wood engraver Abigail Rorer and acclaimed poet Mary Dalton as part of the Garden’s Twilight Tuesday series.
Mary Dalton will give a brief reading from her manuscript entitled “Waste Ground,” which features poems about local, often-underappreciated plants.
Abigail Rorer will speak about her work creating intricate, and sometimes cheeky, wood engravings of a range of flora and fauna. Rorer will be creating illustrations to accompany Dalton’s poems for a forthcoming publication.
Date: July 12
Time: 6:30 – 7:20
Location: MUN Botanical Garden
Cost: Free with admission to the Garden
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the League of Canadian Poets.
