Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to present the latest work by Vancouver based poet Kevin Spenst, whom has embarked on a 50-reading tour of BC in support of small poetry presses. 

Jabbering with Bing Bong (Anvil Press 2015,) is Spenst’s much-anticipated debut collection of poetry. 

The work opens as a coming-of-age narrative of lower-middle class life in Vancouver’s suburb of Surrey, embroidered within a myriad of pop-culture and “post-Mennonite.”

Slocan based poet Barbara Curry Mulcahy will join Kevin Spenst for the Oxygen’s reading on Sunday May 3rd at 7 p.m.

Curry Mulcahy’s book of poetry The Man with the Dancing Monkey was short-listed for the Pat Lowther Memorial Award and the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, and she writes for the Valley Voice. 

Admission is by donation and everyone is welcome. 

Oxygen Art Centre is located at 320 Vernon St (back alley entrance) in Nelson.
