Bruce Rice: The Trouble with Beauty — Regina, SK, Launch

The cover of The Trouble with Beauty, by Bruce Rice
Congrats (again) to Regina poet Bruce Rice — this time, for his wonderful new poetry collection, The Trouble with Beauty (Coteau Books)! 

The Regina launch was held this week at the Slate Fine Art Gallery, with a capacity crowd in attendance. (I'd never been to this new gallery before — it's a fine place for an event like this. Space for a great reading circle of chairs, signing and food tables, and a cash bar.)

Bruce has written a stunning collection, with evocative, story-telling poems about this prairie landscape we love. The poems are accompanied by black and white images by photographer Dennis J. Evans — and I really like the landscape format of The Trouble with Beauty because of the play this allows for both of their work.

A sample of The Trouble with Beauty is available on the publisher's website. Seven poems and a few images. Visit. Read! (Buy?)
