Comedy and poetry unite during a double book launch at the Nanaimo Harbourfront Library Saturday (Nov. 17).

Judy Millar will read Beaver Bluff: The Librarian Stories and Pat Smekal is promoting her book Small Corners, 2 p.m. at the library.

Millar is an award winning writer who frequently participates in spoken-word performances in Nanaimo.

“My stories are set in Big Beaver Country, a fictional country somewhere in the Pacific Northwest,” said Millar in a press release.

Smekal’s Small Corners is a collection of poems. She’s won a number of prizes for her work over the years, which has appeared in Canadian journals, anthologies and chapbooks.
