This is the eighth reading in the Milkcraters of the Moon (MOM) Reading series, a collaboration between Kelowna non-profit arts organization, The Inspired Word Cafe, and the UBCO Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies. The goal of the series is to foster community and coalition building between our local and institutional art communities by pairing notable Canadian authors from out of town with writers from our own community, and to provide a short open mic for other creators to share their work.
