Award-winning Saskatchewan poet, fictionista, essayist and chef dee Hobsbawn-Smith launches her new short story collection, What Can’t Be Undone, seasoned with a tasting of poetry and food politics from her other recent books, Wilderness Rushing In and Foodshed.
There’s a reason one of her stories in What Can’t Be Undone is set in Miracle Beach: Hobsbawn-Smith is intimately familiar with the Comox Valley. She grew up here.
“While my Air Force dad was stationed at Comox, and I attended Lake Trail Junior Secondary High School, where Kevin Flesher, the current Comox Valley poet laureate, teaches English,” she said.
Hobsbawn-Smith will be in Courtenay on a promotional tour and reading at the Circles Wellness Centre, 7 p.m. Sunday, June 21. The Wellness Centre is at 949 Fitzgerald Ave., Courtenay.
