Slow Food and Poetry in Saskatoon

One of the many colours
of the hand-bound chapbook.
Slow Food Saskatoon hosted a food and poetry salon earlier this week to celebrate National Poetry Month.

Organizer dee Hobsbawn-Smith invited a great group of writers from around the province to participate by giving a reading and contributing a poem to the handmade chapbook, Food Works: Plums in the Icebox.

Look at that list in the Table of Contents!

Three of Saskatchewan's Poets Laureates! Award-winning amazing writers! (It's possible that dee may have extra copies if you're interested... This fundraiser book should be a collector's item.)

Slow Food Saskatchewan Poets: Back Row, Brenda Niskala, Dave Margoshes, Don Kerr, Glen Sorestad,
Belinda Betker,Dwayne Brenna, Shelley Banks, gillian harding-russell, Mitch Spray, Taryn Goff,
Katherine Lawrence and Tom Wilson. Front Row: Tara Dawn Solheim (who sang at the event), Laura Edna Lacey,
Nicole Haldoupis, dee Hobsbawn-Smith, Sara-Jane Gloutnez, and Bruce Rice.
(And yes I do have my "you-are-holding-my-camera!" look. Thanks, Gord!) 

And, just because I like this shot,
Slow Food Poet (and much more) dee Hobsbawn-Smith,
with writer Dave Margoshes
What a great list of Saskatchewan writers!
