Join us at 7 PM on Wednesday, July 25 in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers as we launch the summer issue of Prairie Fire (vol. 39, no. 2), a double-sized+ edition that celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the publication in July, 1978 of the first issue of Writers News Manitoba, the ‘zine that morphed into Prairie Fire a few years later.
The evening will feature brief readings by fifteen Winnipeg-based writers whose work appeared in Prairie Fire for the first time this year: Jody Baltessen, Erna Buffie, Rachel Burlock, Roewan Crowe, Jonathan Dyck, J. Robert Ferguson, Hannah Foulger, Trevor Graumann, Christina Hajjar, Teresa Horosko, Graeme Houssin, Karla Korman, Mela Renard, Debbie Strange and Linda Trinh.
Come for the readings, stay for the refreshments. There will be cake.
