|Poetry and a Pint - the poster.|
Listening to poetry — what a novel way to spend a Saturday afternoon! (Drinking beer mid-afternoon is novel for me, too, but we won't get into that...)
The readers were Courtney Bates-Hardy, Coby Stephenson, Brenda Niskala, Eric Greenway (the prose reader who kept us entertained with selections from a short story), and me, Shelley Banks.
Saskatchewan Poet Laureate Gerald Hill presented the event, and was the MC.
There was strong turnout, and the audience seemed to enjoy the event as much as the readers. (At least, that's what they told us afterwards.)
(My thanks to Gord Hunter for the photos that follow.)
