Naomi Beth Wakan, the inaugural poet laureate of Nanaimo and long-time Gabriola resident, will be reading from her latest book of personal essays, “On the Arts. ” “On the Arts” should come with a health warning for one is left breathless coming to the last page. Although she describes herself as an old-fashioned fuddy-duddy Naomi turns out to be anything but. She is a whirlwind, a tornado, and the reader is swept along by the energy of her enthusiasms and her erudite interests. One is left with endless ideas to hammer out at dinner parties or in the local pub; with a book list of ‘must reads’ that will take one over more than a summer holiday; and one will never be able to see things in quite the same light anymore.
