My mother-in-law is Lynn Szabo. She’s the chair of the English department at Trinity Western University, and a reknowned expert in the life and works of Thomas Merton. Merton was a Trappist monk, writer, poet and essayist who lived a fascinating life.
Lynn has edited a new collection of Merton’s poetry, In The Dark Before Dawn. There’s a book launch next Thursday at the library, where she’s going to be reading from the collection. Everybody’s welcome:
