Three Poets, Three Cities: A Western Tour

Three is a magical number, especially when three talented poets travel to three Western Canadian cities to promote three diverse but equally astounding new books.

Jeanette Lynes, Peter Midgley and Jenna Butler will start their Prairie tour in sunny (well, maybe not this time of year) Saskatoon. Join them at McNally-Robinson bookstore on Thursday, November 26, at 7 p.m.

From there, the trio heads to Red Deer, Alberta, for an event at Sunworks on Friday, November 27, at 7 p.m.

The tour ends in Calgary on Sunday, November 29, with an event at Owl's Nest Books at 2 p.m.


Jeanette Lynes's newest collection, Bedlam Cowslip: The John Clare Poems, launched last month with Buckrider Books, an imprint of Wolsak & Wynn.

Peter Midgley follows his travel memoir of Namibia (Counting Teeth, published in 2014) with an African-inflected poetry collection, Unquiet Bones.

Jenna Butler turns her poetic eye and lyricism to non-fiction in her collection of ecological essays, A Profession of Hope: Farming on the Edge of the Grizzly Trail.
