Get ready for some poetry reading by Ina-Griet Raatz-von Hirschhausen at Cafe Brie (117 W Second Ave., Qualicum Beach) on Aug. 20. She will be reading a selection of her English poems starting at 4 p.m.
Hirschhausen said she started writing poetry — originally in German — in 2007.
Hirschhausen said she embodies different characters that help to illustrate the themes of the poems. Each reading is about 20 minutes.
“It’s like little thoughtful bites in between,” said Hirschhausen.
