Regina book launch - Shelley Banks, Tara Gereaux, Jan Wood

That was fun, launching my poetry collection, Exile on a Grid Road, on Thursday with Tara Gereaux (Size of a Fist) and Jan Wood (Love is not Anonymous). We had a great room at Bushwakkers (so great beer, too), and a wonderful MC! (Thank you, Eric Greenway!)

And thanks, too, to Thistledown Press for publishing our books in this year's New Leaf Series, and for help arranging this event! (All of our books are available directly through Thistledown, as well as from SaskBooks, and other booksellers.)

And a big thank you to Anne McDonald, for my Exile Happy Book Birthday cake! And to Annette Bower, for suggesting banners! (More pix on my Exile on a Grid Road blog.)
