Local author’s second book being launched at Rhodos Coffee

April 24 from 7-9 p.m.

Sashar- Shards of Light

Local poet Neil Lemke will be launching his second book of poetry, “Shachar: Shards of Light”, on Friday, April 24 at Rhodos Coffee in Courtenay (364 8th Street, Unit 106) from 7-9 p.m.

There will be complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a time for gathering and chatting from 7-7:30. There will also be a cash and carry coffee bar operating.

This will be followed by a brief introduction by Neil’s publisher, Natalie Fuhr-Salvatore, and the reading of selected poems by the author (and by Carrie Lemke).

“Shachar: Shards of Light, is an intense exploration of the human condition,” said Fuhr-Salvatore.

“From the evocative and powerful epic, ‘Sent’, to his shorter narrative poems, Neil Lemke conducts a literary symphony of hope, love, despair and joy in this beautiful arrangement of his work.”
