Nicole’s Sunshine Coast reading will include selections from her Beowulf, a rollicking tale of toxic masculinity against the Beast from Outside. Markotić’s translation is both irreverently hilarious and meticulously researched. In the words of one reviewer, “Upending the tale with her fresh and enchanting style, Markotić gives a nod to previous translations, winks at canonical critics, bares historical biases, all while gifting transmogrifying pages that will whet your whimsy!”
Is she an artist who writes or a writer or who paints?

Gibsons filmmaker Liz Marshall explores the question “are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?” in her thought-provoking and award-winning documentary The Ghosts in Our Machine. St. Hilda’s Green Forum speaker series presents a special free screening of Marshall’s film, which will take place both in-person and on Zoom. The event will also feature a Q&A with Marshall.
The Ghosts in Our Machine gently reveals one of the most haunting moral dilemmas of our modern world, illuminating the plight of animals rescued from and living within the machine of our modern world, from captive foxes to rescued dairy cows. Marshall directs this powerful documentary through the heart and lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur.
The Sunshine Coast Arts Council, under the guidance of a Literary Reading Committee, sponsors a series of readings each year. Authors make a selection to read from their texts, followed by a discussion with the audience. This will be held in person at the Arts Centre, entrance by donation.
Theresa Kishkan is a poet, novelist, and essayist and writer living on the Sechelt Peninsula on the west coast of Canada whose most recent work, Blue Portugal, was published by University of Alberta Press this past spring. Kishkan describes herself as a “sloppy quilter” and growing vegetables and flowers “happily, if carelessly.” But when it comes to her writing, these descriptions do not apply. Her use of words is precise, intentional, and meditative.
