VIBC presents An Evening with Rupi Kaur
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
601 Smithe Street at Seymour
Author and illustrator Rupi Kaur comes to Vancouver with a spoken word performance from her new book- The Sun and Her Flowers.
This book is about the journey of growth and healing as well as ancestry and honoring one’s roots.
Rupi Kaur is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. She started drawing at the age of five when her mother handed her a paintbrush and said -- draw your heart out. Rupi views her life as an exploration of that artistic journey. After completing her degree in rhetoric studies she published her first collection of poems, Milk and Honey, in 2014. The internationally acclaimed collection sold well over a million copies, gracing the NYT bestseller list every week for over a year. It has since been translated into over thirty languages. Her long-awaited second collection The Sun and Her Flowers was published in 2017. Through this collection she continues to explore a variety of themes ranging from love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, migration, and revolution. Rupi has performed her poetry across the world. Her photography and art direction are warmly embraced and she hopes to continue this expression for years to come.
