Editors invite public to help launch new Lake Nov. 21

The second issue of Lake: A Journal of Arts and Environment is hot off the press and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC Okanagan is celebrating with a splash.

On Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m., the editors of Lake invite the community to Habitat (248 Leon Ave) to celebrate the arrival of Issue 2. Tickets are $20 (students get in for $12). Each ticket gets you a special blue Lakemartini and snacks, and you’ll enjoy live music from Ari Neufeld.

“This issue of Lake is truly special,” says editor Sharon Thesen. “It is not only beautifully produced but also full of outstanding nationally and internationally renowned writers and artists. The magazine is putting Kelowna on the cultural map.”

This issue includes:

  • An interview with indigenous writer and activist Jeannette Armstrong
  • Conversations between visual arts editor Gary Pearson and three outstanding Vancouver artists, including the internationally renowned Jeff Wall, talking about some of their work in the Okanagan valley
  • An elegiac poetic sequence by Susan Musgrave
  • A new essay by West Coast writer Thesesa Kishkan, and much more.

“We’re having a great party on the 21st,” says Nancy Holmes, Lake’s co-editor. “And we will have copies for sale—a limited print run, so come early and get one! They are going to be collector’s items.”

Only 150 tickets are available — to reserve tickets contact rivkahs@gmail.com or buy them in person by visiting Room FIN 153 in the Fine Arts and Health building at UBC Okanagan between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays.
