Poet Garry Thomas Morse takes part in a number of events during this year’s THIN AIR writers festival in Winnipeg, which is on now! Already he has taken part in the Afternoon Book Chat and the mainstage Poetry Bash. Morse will be reading from his new book, Prairie Harbour, and copies will be available for purchase and signing.
Today, September 24, he gives a reading at 1 PM in the Cross Common Room of St John’s College, University of Manitoba Fort Garry Campus to which all are welcome. Tomorrow, September 25, he gives another reading as part of A Putting Down of Roots: CV2 40th Anniversary. Help celebrate 40 years of poetry in Winnipeg! CV2 – formally Contemporary Verse 2: The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing – continues to embody the vision of its founder, the intrepid poet Dorothy Livesay: to present wide-ranging poetry and thoughtful essays about it. To help celebrate this milestone, CV2 teams up with UW’s Gallery 1C03 for “A Putting Down of Roots” – 1 PM at Gallery 1C03 at the University of Winnipeg.
For more information, see the THIN AIR event listing for tickets and more information. Also see the University of Winnipeg website.
Prairie Harbour is now available from Talonbooks, having arrived from the press earlier this week!
