SKEENA Book Launch
Thursday, October 15th
“These poems are both songs of joy for the beauty of a river, and prayers for its well being and the well being of all those who dwell within its drainage. The Skeena, the ‘river of mists,’ has its muse in Sarah de Leeuw. This collection is her gift to all of us who know and love a river known to the Tsimshian people as ‘Xsan, the ‘waters that flow from the clouds.’”
Sarah de Leeuw is the winner of the 2013 Dorothy Livesay Award for poetry, a two-time recipient of a CBC Literary Award for creative non-fiction and, in 2014, won a Western Magazine Gold Award for the best article published that year in British Columbia.
