Join us at the Nanaimo Harbourfront Branch for the launch of Governor General Award winning local poet Robert Hilles’ 22nd book and 17th poetry book, Shimmer. Copies of the book will be available to purchase for $19.
Shimmer is a series of love poems. These poems convey love’s many nuances and express its tenuous, yet potent nature. Through precise details, the poet reveals love’s spiritual crucible. The poems are specific yet universal as they show love’s varied complexities. Love poems have long been a tenure of poets and he adds a contemporary take on them as he shifts between the concrete and the sublime. His other books include: Cantos from a Small Room, Raising of Voices, Higher Ground, A Gradual Ruin, Wrapped Within Again, Calling the Wild, Partake, Time Lapse, and Line.
