Great readings at the Lit Tent at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival yesterday in Regina, SK! I felt honoured to be part of the line-up, with writers Dave Sealy, Sandra Ridley, Martine Noël-Maw, Tracy Hamon, Brenda Niskala and Saskatchewan's Poet Laureate, Don Kerr.
The event was organized by the CVAF Literary Committee, and Bernadette Wagner, Paul Wilson and Bruce Rice handled the introductions with dramatic flair. (New to many in the audience: Bruce's father and mine both worked at a dynamite factory on Vancouver Island, back before either of us were born.) June Mitchell and others joined the fun at the open mic.
To celebrate, a gallery of photos from the day. (It was startlingly cold for late May! Look at the clothes and expressions of the writers/readers!)
