Devolution Book Launch — CliFi Poetry

Sat Mar 21, 2020, Nanaimo, BC

Join award-winning poet Kim Goldberg for a free talk and reading to celebrate the launch of her eighth book: Devolution – surreal poems and fables of ecotastrophe.

Can poetry transmute climate grief to climate action? Is every creative act an act of extinction rebellion? What is the role of imagination and myth-making in times of crisis? And why are houseflies hell-bent for liberty? Discussion will follow.

Devolution is Kim’s personal act of extinction rebellion. Come help her celebrate the Nanaimo launch on World Poetry Day!

The poems and fables in Devolution span the Anthropocene, speaking to ecological unraveling, social confusion, private pilgrimage, urbanization and wildness. Kim offers up businessmen who loft away as crows, a town that reshapes itself each night, a journey through caves so narrow we must become centipedes to pass. Her canvas holds both the personal and the political at once, offering rich layers of meaning, but with a playfulness reminiscent of Calvino or Borges. Each imaginative narrative will haunt the reader long after the book has been put down. Published by Caitlin Press.
