Poetry Month: Readings in Regina, Saskatchewan

It was a night for Poets Laureate in Regina last week, when Saskatoon's Don Kerr, the current Poet Laureate of Saskatchewan, along with Glen Sorestad (Saskatoon) and Robert Currie (Moose Jaw), two past holders of that post, read in celebration of National Poetry Month.

The assembly room at Government House was full, the flags colourful, and the poetry highly entertaining. (I missed a picture of Sorestad, but Currie and Kerr are below...)

The event, hosted by Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield and the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, marked the 6th Annual Poetry Reading at Government House.

(And congrats to Robert Currie, for his new release Young Adult novel, Living with the Hawk, from Thistledown Press!)
