From 2 to 4 pm on Saturday, March 12, 2011, the Nanaimo Art Gallery downtown, 150 Commercial Street, is hosting Fleeting Shadows, a poetry reading/book signing event with Ms. Kamal Parmar. Kamal Parmar was born in India and has been passionately involved in writing for the last 15 years. Her genre is poetry and she has a few books to her credit. A number of her poems have been published in reputed Canadian literary journals and magazines. Her poems are simple, though poised and evocative to set the reader thinking. While juggling wisdom with naiveté, she appeals for a touch of God in our lives. Currently she is working on a manuscript that describes the emotional journey of a writer, while juxtaposing images of Canada and her original country, India. She currently resides in Nanaimo, BC with her family. For more information contact 250-754-1750.
