Talking Fresh wrapped up with a lovely happy hour launch of Quiver by Holly Luhning and Girlwood by Jennifer Still. Books were flying off the book table after their fabulous readings. I bought one of each. I also bought The Mourner's Book of Albums, Daniel Scott Tysdal's new book. Now I own a copy of every book published by every one of the presenters.
There's a group photo and links over on Latitude Drifts. And more flowers.
More photos and comments over on Poet Shoes.
After the panel on Friday, Tracy led me to the library at Luther College where I visited the Margaret Belcher Reading Room.
The late Margaret Belcher, a university professor, author and ornithologist, is a well-known name in Saskatchewan natural history circles. I had no idea, however, that she wrote a book titled Bird Imagery in the Lyric Poetry of Tristan L’Hermite (1987). I must track it down.
