An event celebrating the life and works of Yukon poet Robert Service has been rescheduled after being cancelled in March.

The event is hosted by the Friends of the RDPL, with all proceeds going towards the library. It was initially planned for March 13, but was cancelled due to illness.

Service “lived such an interesting life and it was beyond the Yukon poetry – that was what made him a poetry rock star, but his life was much more beyond that,” Jacobson said during an interview in March.

Tickets are $10 and available at the downtown branch member services desk beginning June 1.
