Press Release

The Old Crow Café is where you will find The White Crow - the new book written by Salt Spring Island’s Christine Smart who will be the featured reader May 15 after Open Mic.

“In Christine Smart’s finely wrought poems,” says Marilyn Bowering “one has the sense of an intelligence that sifts the world for its gold: she interweaves the precision and splendour of the natural world with acutely perceived narratives which range from the personal to the global. It strikes me that this is the real vocation of the poet - to provide a context and a means of reconciliation for every sorrow and every shiver of beauty.”
