Literary salon could spark imaginations

NANAIMO – Imagine is the theme of the next literary salon at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre

Imagine is the theme of the next literary salon at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre on Oct. 29.

The centre extended its ministry of hospitality to poetic expression, hosting the first literary salon last month. More than 30 people gathered to discuss and explore Dark Matter, a volume of poetry from Leanne MacIntosh and Jack Sproule.

Among the discussion of the work was talk of the publishing process, with publisher Ursula Vaira of Leaf Press sharing her involvement with the manuscript.

The next salon is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. Admission is $10.
