I’m reading in Vancouver on Monday. Details below, if you’re in the area and interested.
In conjuction with the PRISM contest posted in the previous entry, PRISM is hosting a reading by award-winning authors Trevor Herriot and a. rawlings.
What happens when lepidoptery meets sleep studies? What significance do disappearing grassland birds have for the prairies and the people who live there? Join us for an evening of readings that explore our relationships with the natural world.
