Because we can, or because we must, humans and creatures of the wild have forever embarked on journeys into the great unknown. Grueling, thrilling, dangerous journeys.
This is the stuff our most ancient hopes and dreams, of wonder and discovery, and sometimes tragic consequences. Come hear and share poems, music and tales of people and other creatures on the move.
Local performers will share songs. Authors will share stories and poems written by another. Audience members are invited to participate with a favourite poem, song or short tale.
Churchmouse After Hours is a monthly neighbourhood coffeehouse with songs, stories, poems and prose on a rotating theme. All are welcome to listen or join in. Note: This is not a literary open-mic. Though local authors do participate, we are all readers sharing work we enjoy and admire. Now on the fourth Wednesday of most months at 7 pm at Churchmouse Bookshop in St Mary’s, Oak Bay, 1701 Elgin Rd.
