The featured reader is Yvette Doucette, recipient of the 2013 Award for Distinguished Contribution to the Literary Arts on Prince Edward Island.

The themes of nature, motherhood, love, loss, the sea, and the great transformer — death — find their way into Yvette Doucette’s writing. Her poetry has been described as “lush, sensuous, and heart-driven”, and has been published in Letting Go: An Anthology of Loss and Survival (Black Moss, 2005), Arts East Online (2011 Summer), and in The Great Black North (Frontenac House, 2013). Yvette has also had poetry appear on cakes, in boxes, and other Peake Street Collective and “this town is small” formats.

Well-known Island musician, Nancy Clement, will play her Celtic flute.
