The Irish Club of White Rock is co-hosting poetry nights at White Rock's Slainte By the Pier bar/ restaurant, starting Jan. 16.
The series, done in association with Semiahmoo Arts, will be held there on the third Wednesday of each month.
First up is Slainte proprietor Jack Sixsmith, who on Jan. 16 will read works by his favourite Irish poet, Patrick Kavanagh.
In subsequent months, volunteers with the Irish Club of White Rock will assist with readings and also present their favourite poets. Other poets to be featured in the series are Seamus Heaney, Louis MacNeice, WB Yeats, Medbh McGuckian and JM Synge. To get involved in the readings, contact Ray Fynes, 604-542-3667.
