...in this pic came in the mail today. Gifts from me to me.
They are Calm Things, a book of essays by Shawna Lemay and Lemon Hound, a collection of poetry by Sina Queyras.
The bottom book, Writing Saskatchewan: 20 Critical Essays, edited by Kenneth G. Probert, is a gift from Tracy Hamon. It arrived before Christmas. I had piled some heavy books on top of it when I was working to meet a deadline and inadvertently bent its spine. I tried to straighten it, but it's as bent as ever. I hate when I damage books.
