Join Ingrid Ruthig and the MFA in Writing program for the Saskatchewan launch of The Essential Elizabeth Brewster, November 3 at 3:00 pm via Zoom.

Ingrid Ruthig, a writer and poet, joins us for the Saskatchewan launch of The Essential Elizabeth Brewster to discuss Brewster’s poetry and the poet’s focus on creating a self, undefined by place--  a life on her own terms.

Dr. Elizabeth Brewster taught literature and creative writing here at the University of Saskatchewan many years ago, from 1972 until 1990. Before she passed away in December, 2012, at the age of 90, Elizabeth wrote 27 books including novels, short stories, collections of essays and several poetry collections. As well, she helped found The Fiddlehead, a Canadian literary journal and was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Saskatchewan Arts Board.

Having lived in numerous places across Canada, including New Brunswick, Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Elizabeth’s poetry takes us through Canada via thought and memories, as well as delving into the Old Testament and the universe.

In The Essential Elizabeth Brewster, editor and selector of poems, Ingrid Ruthig encourages us to remember a great Canadian poet who enjoyed her time alone, time filled with writing.
