From the Lost and Found Department with Joy Kogawa


May 4th, 2.00pm – 3.00pm (PST) at Vancouver Japanese Language School.

A career-spanning volume that brings together new and selected works by an iconic voice in Canadian literature. From the Lost and Found Department, by the trailblazing Joy Kogawa, is a profound work of spare, trenchant, and haunting poems that lets us stay with the quietest qualities of beauty and the sublime.

This essential volume brings together thrilling new work with selected poems from The Splintered Moon (1967), A Choice of Dreams (1974), Jericho Road (1977), Woman In the Woods (1985), and A Garden of Anchors: Selected Poems (2003).

Kogawa’s poems here are evidence that our every vulnerability can open into vast channels of grace.
