Violet Quesnel by Coby Stephenson.
Emily via the Greyhound Bus by Allison Kydd.
I bought these two books at Coby Stephenson's wonderful launch on Thursday. Allison Kydd was one of the guest readers.Courtney Bates and Cassidy McFadzean read as well. I look forward to Cassidy's chapbook, Farwell, which will be published by JackPine Press this fall.
How to Be a River by Brenda Niskala.
Flyways by Devin Krukoff.
This book, along with my book Grid, are being studied this fall in English 110 at Luther College, University of Regina. I had a great time during my class visit on Friday and was totally impressed with the questions and observations put forward by the students. The time flew. At the end of the class Professor Gerald Hill, aka Gerry, presented me with a copy of Flyways. Nice. Many thanks to all.
