Congratulations to Brian Brett!

First thing I did when I got up this morning was look to see who won the Rogers Writers’ Trust of Canada awards”, and….

Hearty congratulations to my friend Brian Brett, who won for his non-fiction work, TRAUMA FARM: A Rebel History of Rural Life. Brian served as our local writer-in-residence two years ago and has been a huge source of help and encouragement to me as I tred to figure out this whole writer thing.

TRAUMA FARM is a beautiful history of farming and living on the land. Please, read it! Brian’s also a fantastic poet, and this book melds memoir, history, and poetic language into a cohesive, thoughtful love song to the earth and good green growing things.

More about Brian can be found at his website.

Yay Brian – such fantastic news!
