Saskatchewan (and Toronto) writer Holly Luhning launched her new novel Quiver (HarperCollins) at the Talking Fresh poetry summit in Regina on Saturday, March 5, 2011.

The horrific legend of sixteenth century Countess Elizabeth Báthory is at the heart of Quiver. It's a story that has fascinated Holly for many years.

Holly and I were in a writing group together for a brief time six or seven years ago, when she was considering a potential poetry collection about the legend of the Countess.

"Some of those poems are still in the text," she told us at Saturday's reading.

Congrats, Holly — and welcome back to the Prairies!

"Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it." 
— Donna Tartt, The Secret History (epigraph from Quiver)
