Theresa Kishkan – Book Launch – Euclid’s Orchard and Other Essays
Sep 8 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Theresa Kishkan – Book Launch – Euclid’s Orchard and Other Essays

Luminous and bountiful writing about place, no one writes like Kishkan. In her new collection of essays Kishkan unravels an intricately patterned algorithm, a madrigal of horticulture and love. Opening with ‘Herakleitos on the Yalakom,’ a turbulent homage to her father, and ending in ‘Euclid’s Orchard,’ amidst bees and coyotes, her touchstones of natural history and family mythology are re-aligned and mortared with metaphysics and mathematics. Along the way her signature lyricism of place and home sings us from her grandparents’ first homestead near Drumheller via an actual ‘Poignant Mountain’ of her girlhood to her beloved home on the Sechelt Peninsula in BC.
