We attended the unveiling of Poetic Spirits of the Valley in Abbotsford today. The MSA Poets Potpourri Society put on quite a party to launch this book of poems, prose and photos, and to generally celebrate the 25 years the society has been in existence.
I’ve been a member for just a little over a year. While I’ve enjoyed participating in a few of the society’s readings, I’m really only a hanger-on.
Nevertheless, even hangers-on got to submit their poems. And so, with three poems included in the book I signed a couple of books, then joined hubby, who so graciously drove me, in drinking coffee and feasting on sandwiches, fruit and cake with the best of them.
Congratulations to the publication committee, and Alvin, our fearless editor!
