This monthly reading series with a guest musician goes Monday March 14 at Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar. The readers this time are all authors nominated for 2016 Saskatchewan Book Awards (which will be held April 30 at Conexus Arts Centre in Regina).

First up, David Carpenter will read from The Education of Augie Merasty which he co-authored with Jospeh Auguste Merasty. Then MacKenzie Gallery curator Timothy Long will read from his catalogue essay for an exhibition by Saskatoon artist Amalie Atkins called We Live on the Edge of Disaster and Imagine We are in a Musical. Finally, Judith Silverthorne will read from Honouring the Buffalo which she co-authored with Ray Lavallee, and which also included illustrations by Mike Keepness.

Musical guest is country/roots artist Rye Noble, and things should get going at Crave on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
