Prairie Fire Magazine Turns Forty.
Join us this evening as we launch the summer issue of Prairie Fire (vol. 39, no. 2), a double-sized edition that celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the publication in July, 1978 of the first issue of Writers News Manitoba, the ‘zine that morphed into Prairie Fire a few years later.
The evening will feature readings by fifteen Winnipeg-based writers who have never appeared in Prairie Fire until this year: Jody Baltessen, Erna Buffie, Rachel Burlock, Roewan Crowe, Jonathan Dyck, J. Robert Ferguson, Hannah Foulger, Trevor Graumann, Christina Hajjar, Teresa Horosko, Graeme Houssin, Karla Korman, Mela Renard, Patricia Robertson, Debbie Strange and Linda Trinh.
Come for the readings, stay for the refreshments. There will be cake.
