About the event

Ingrid Ruthig, a writer and poet, joins us for the Saskatchewan launch of The Essential Elizabeth Brewster—a new collection of Brewster’s poems selected by Ruthig.

Ruthig will 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 (PhD) taught literature and creative writing at the University of Saskatchewan from 1972–1990. Before she passed away in December, 2012, at the age of 90, Brewster 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, Brewster’s poetry takes us through Canada via thought and memories, as well as delving into the Old Testament and the universe.
