A Trail of Light (poems for the journey)
A Trail of Light (2010) is a collection of poetic writings by three Canadian poets (Thurlow Gowan, Brayden Sawatzky, and Nicholas Roberts), each from a different generation with a very different style of expressing themselves. Together their poems form a vivid portrayal of thoughts and emotions, engagingly expressed in a tapestry of life, love, spirituality, and humour.
Thurlow, Brayden, and Nicholas met and became friends through the Poets Potpourri Society in Abbotsford, B.C.
Price: $15.00 (includes postage and shipping)

Poetic Spirits of the Valley (Anthology)
Our anthology Poetic Spirits of the Valley launched September 30, 2006 at the 25th anniversary of the PPS. It became an immediate hit with friends and fans.
Features include an in-depth account of the founding and history of the PPS, numerous poems by current PPS members and a summary, in word and picture, of the civic celebration that PPS members hosted when the controversial SE2 project was defeated.
Many readers have found the history of the PPS inspiring. Most remarkable is the determination and perseverance of Donna Bishop who founded PPS in 1981 and who was its driving force for over 20 years. Also illuminating is the history of the many talented individuals who have either served the PPS or been influenced by it since its birth.
Kudos to the current members who submitted poems and special thanks are due editor Alvin Ens and PPS Anthology Committee members for taking on such an enormous time-consuming job.
The anthology is available for purchase by visiting us on reading nights or by contacting Karen Belix-Moore.
Update January 2008: The Anthology has sold 450 of the 500 copies and we want to thank all of those who supported the project by purchasing it.
