Vertigo Reading Series

I’ll have more on the Saskatchewan Book Awards, which are being held this Saturday at Conexus Arts Centre, in a April 23 blog post. But this event qualifies as a bit of a prelude, that’s because the three writers who will be reading are all nominees for SBAs in 2015.

Robert Currie is nominated in the Young Adult Literature category for his novel Living With the Hawk, Ken Dalgarno is nominated in the First Book category for Badlands: A Geography of Metaphors and Paul Hanley is nominated in the Non-Fiction and Saskatoon Book categories for Eleven.

Vertigo Reading Series goes tonight at Crave Restaurant (1925 Victoria Ave.) at 7:30 p.m. Music will be provided by the Quarter Tones Flute Ensemble.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
