Kate Marshall Flaherty and the League of Canadian Poets invite you to join us for the Toronto launch of Heartwood: Poems for the Love of Trees. This beautiful event is a celebration of trees, poetry, and the vital role that trees play to environmental health.
This event will feature readings from many of the Toronto contributors to Heartwood. We’ll also be having a special screening of Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees. Join us for a wonderful evening in the beautiful High Park Nature Centre, perfect for any lover of poetry, trees, and the environment.
About Call of the Forest: In a theatrical feature and 1-hour television documentary, we follow visionary scientist, conservationist and author, Diana Beresford-Kroeger, on her journey to the most beautiful forests of the northern hemisphere. From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan, the ancient Raheen Wood of Ireland, the walnut and redwood trees of America, to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger tells us the amazing stories behind the history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.
You can find out more about the Heartwood Anthology project here. Copies of the book will be for sale!
Please note: Not in Toronto? Launches of Heartwood are planned and coming up on Ottawa, Calgary, and other regions TBD! Keep an eye on the League of Canadian Poets page for updates!
