|Gerald Hill, Saskatchewan's new Poet Laureate|
Gerald Hill read from his new work, "When I Became Poet Laureate," which he's posting in video instalments on the Saskatchewan Poet Laureate Facebook page.
(Tune in! It's funny! I mean, very insightful and wise...)
He also received a gift from outgoing Poet Laureate Judith Krause, a rather strange, yet compellingly spectacular, tie. (I will be watching for this...)
There was a full house for the event — it's great to see support for the literary arts in Saskatchewan! (Yeah, Saskatchewan Writers' Guild for working behind the scenes to make this program happen!)
And yes, I am using many exclamation marks today, in part because our new Poet Laureate claims they have all disappeared... What next? Ellipses? Say it isn't so...
