Emily Isaacson to read

Posted by Violet Nesdoly on January 16, 2013

To Poets and Poetry Lovers…

Emily Isaacson - Abbotsford poetry reading

Emily Isaacson, at a 2012 poetry reading.

The Poets Potpourri Society would like to invite you to a reading by one of our members.
Emily Isaacson will be doing a poetry reading at the La Casa Coffee Shop at Mt. Lehman Centre in Abbotsford on Friday, January 25th, 2013 from 3pm to 5pm.

Feel free to arrive at any time for a portion of the reading, or come for the entire event.
There will be time for group discussions, and Emily is open to a few of you reading your own
poetry at the event.

Mt. Lehman Centre is across from the Abbotsford Auto Mall at the Freeway #1 Mt. Lehman
exit.

We would appreciate it if you could RSVP just so that we have an advance idea as to how many
people may be showing up (but no RSVP is required for attending).

Here’s hoping to hear from you…

Brayden Sawatzky,  PPS President
