Sarah de Leeuw’s most recent book, Geographies of a Lover, won the Dorothy Livesay Award, a prize granted annually in British Columbia to the best collection of poetry by an author in the province. A two-time recipient of a CBC Literary Prize for creative non-fiction, de Leeuw is also the author of two books of essays: Unmarked: Landscapes Along Highway 16 and Frontlines: Portraits of Caregivers in Northern BC. Having spent most of her life in Northern British Columbia, and holding a PhD in geography, de Leeuw’s writing is focused on deeply felt and embodied relationships between humans and the natural world: Geographies of a Lover has been described as an “ecoerotic” text.
