BERNADETTE RULE is a talented poet, author, editor, teacher and very active member of Hamilton’s literary community. She is also the host of the popular Mohawk College arts programme Air Waves. Bernadette has been published in The Malahat Review, Descant and Hammered Out. A collection of her selected poems, The Literate Thief, was published in a limited edition by Larkspur Press. Bernadette was born in Kentucky and currently lives in Dundas.
In the Wings: Stories of Forgotten Women is published by Seraphim Editions and is the culmination of a project Bernadette undertook with a group of students in the McMaster Writing Certificate Programme. She has edited this collection of stories of forgotten women. “It takes dedication and cooperation to omit women from the story of the human race. In the Wings is an attempt to stop cooperating with this massive omission.”
JEANETTE LYNES is the author of one novel and five collections of poetry and has been nominated for several of Canada’s most prestigious literary awards including the Scotiabank Giller Prize. She is a great storyteller. Her titles include The Aging Cheerleader’s Alphabet and The New Blue Distance. Jeanette is the coordinator of the MFA in Writing at the University of Saskatchewan.
Archive of the Undressed, published by Wolsak and Wynn, is Jeanette Lynes’ sixth and most recent book of poetry. Sequins, parties, dead centrefolds, and freshly plowed fields, this new title is tantalizing and will change the way you think of men’s magazines.
Free admission, everyone welcome.
