First up, the October Vertigo Reading Series event was amazing with captivating readings by three great novelists: Connie Gault, Dianne Warren and Elizabeth Phillips (and music by Ava Wild). One of the best sets of SK writers imaginable! My camera was sleeping at home, but here's the poster:
Next, the John V. Hicks Awards, sponsored by the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild at their Fall Conference. Congrats to the winners!
First Place: Katherine Lawrence for Never Mind
Second Place: Gerry Hill for Occasional Cities
Third Place: Carla Barkman for Shot
Honourable mention: Kathleen Wall for Visible Cities.
|Congrats to Katherine Lawrence!|
I am really looking forward to reading this book!
