Shortlist Reading I

Poetry lovers, this one is for you! Enjoy an evening of poetry with three shortlisted authors from the Saskatchewan Book Awards. Lisa Bird-Wilson will read from her powerful collection The Red Files,  Katherine Lawrence will share a centuries-old immigrant tale in Never Mind, and Sylvia Legris will delve into the body in The Hideous Hidden.

Shortlist Reading II

We've got a reading for fans of Young Adult literature as well! Enjoy a special appearance from three Young Adult authors at McNally Robinson.  Three shortlisted authors from the Saskatchewan Book Awards will read from their Young Adult books and answer questions from the audience.  Arthur Slade will share from the delightfully creepy Flickers,  Beth Goobie will read from her powerful new book The Pain Eater,  and Madeleine Blais-Dahlem will read from the English section  of her bilingual novel La voix de mon père / My Father's Voice.
