Summer Dream: A Night of Honour
Susan Musgrave: Then and Now
Join us at the Jacana Gallery, to celebrate those in the writing community who deserve to be honoured. This Summer Dream night of honouring will begin with a lifetime achievement award for Susan Musgrave whose first book was published 40 years ago and still is a strong force on the Canadian poetry scene. Susan is an inspiration and mentor to so many. We will then go on to give awards to publishers of magazines who continue to support novice and established writers despite cutbacks and inflation. To be honoured are Room, Event, Prism. Sub Terrain, Geist, The Capilano Review and One Cool Word. Finally the evening will end with four special awards. Three will be awards of merit for persons or organizations that support the writing community. These awards will come from the writing community itself as we have asked for nominations and will be putting these names out for a vote. Finally one award will go to recognize an individual who Pandora’s Collective feels has excelled in their support of writers within our community. This evening will continue the Summer Dream commitment to highlighting community involvement to the public. Mike Peacock of Melic Thrum will be our musical featured guest and there will be a special guest appearance by a musician to collaborate on a work of Susan’s.
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Jacana Gallery
2435 Granville Street
Editor's note: As if it weren't interesting enough, RC and SR are both nominated in the Organizer/Promoter category! Perhaps if there is a tie, they'll Jello wrestle this time for the title!
