Robert Currie, Paul Hanley, Ken Dalgarno at Vertigo

This week's Vertigo Reading Series in Regina,SK, featured readings by three nominees for the 2015 Saskatchewan Book Awards: Robert Currie, Paul Hanley and Ken Dalgarno, with music by the Quarter Tones Flute Ensemble.

What a range of writing, from Currie's intriguing novel for young adults (Living with the Hawk, Thistledown Press - and I love hearing Bob read!), through Dalgarno's gorgeous photographs (Badlands: A Geography of Metaphors, Red Deer Press), to Hanley's well-researched Eleven (Friesen Press).

The awards will be announced on Saturday, April 25. 2015.
