McAdam, Hegerat, Smith at Vertigo Reading

A great Vertigo reading in Regina last night with Steven Ross Smith, Betty Jane Hegerat and Rhona McAdam. Yes, it was Easter Sunday — and one of the first warm evenings — but a good group turned out to listen and visit and buy books.

Steven read from his new collection, Fluttertongue 5: everything appears to shine with mossy splendour (Turnstone, 2011); Betty Jane, from the manuscript for her forthcoming bookThe Boy(Oolichan, 2011); and Rhona, from her new chapbook, The Earth's Kitchen (Leaf Press, 2011).

The reading was sponsored by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, which has recently taken on the reading series, hosted last night by Tracy Haman, with bookseller Gerry Hill. (Look for more of my snapshots from the event on the Vertigo Easter Reading page.)



  1. Great pic! Wish I could've been there. And a new venue, too! Looks nice from that angle.

  2. Thanks! It was moved to the lounge at The Chimney for this reading, as the normal venue was closed. It worked well -- very cosy.

  3. Wish you could have been there too Brenda! And thanks for the nice pics Shelley. How cool to be my own button!

  4. You are most welcome, Rhona! (And yes, it would have been fun if Brenda had driven down, too. Regina is not really so far...)
