The latest additions to my collection
The Bourgeois Empire by Evie Christie, which was reviewed over at the Globe today.
Dimensions of an Orchard by Dave Margoshes.
Welcome to Canada and A Hunter's Confession, both by David Carpenter and both reviewed here.
I bought the last three books at the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild Fall Conference and AGM in Saskatoon on the weekend where Don McKay delivered the Caroline Heath Memorial Lecture. The other conference guests included Mary Balogh, Robert Currie, David Carpenter, Amy Jo Ehman, Jean Freeman, Wes Funk, Louise Halfe, Gerald Hill, Myrna Kostash, Alison Lohans, Elder Michael Maurice, Ken Mitchell, James Romanow, Arthur Slade, Karon Shmon, Peter Stoicheff, Geoffrey Ursell, Carol Vandale and Kenneth T. Williams.
I wrote an occasional poem and read it at the open mic on Friday. Here it is.
Who knew there'd be cheesecake at the banquet.
