Ariel Gordon and Garry Thomas Morse Read in Regina

Garry Thomas Morse and Ariel Gordon look at Ariel's new chapbook,
How to Make a Collage.  
Ariel Gordon and Garry Thomas Morse took to the microphone on an icy cold evening in Regina, bringing humour, action, drama and even opera singing to those who braved the weather for two great readings at the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild office.

Ariel Gordon is a Winnipeg writer whose first book of poetry, Hump, was published in 2010 by Palimpsest Press, and whose second is slated for publication in 2014. Recently, she won the Kalamalka Press' inaugural poetry award; the result is her chapbook, How to Make a Collage.

Garry Thomas Morse, a new Regina resident, is the author of four books of poetry, including Discovery Passage, about his ancestral Kwakwa'wakw First Nation, a finalist for the 2011 Governor General's Award and the 2012 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. He's also published a collection of short stories (Death in Vancouver) and an experimental fiction series The Chaos! Quincunx, all available from Talon Books.

So, for those who stayed home to shelter from the cold... You missed a great evening! And Christmas treats, too. (And seriously, amazing singing by Garry.)
The many faces of Ariel Gordon!
