Andrew Suknaski memorial/wake reading;

A memorial/wake reading for the late prairie poet Andrew Suknaski (July 30, 1942 - May 3, 2012), the poet of Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan, will be held upstairs at The Carleton Tavern, 233 Armstrong Street (at Parkdale), Ottawa on Friday, June 1, 2012 at 7:30pm.

Hosted by rob mclennan, this informal gathering of friends, admirers, fans and otherwise well-wishers will feature readings of Suknaski's own words as tribute by someof his friends.

If you would like to say a few words about/for Suknaski, or have the opportunity to read a short selection from one of his works, email rob mclennan at rob_mclennan (at)

For those inquiring about There Is No Mountain: The Selected Poems of Andrew Suknaski, edited by rob mclennan, will be appearing (thanks to a generous offer made to help offset production costs) once the rights are secured via Suknaski's literary executor.
