Paul Headrick & Robert Bringhurst at the Robson Reading Series

A Notable Night of Poetry and Prose: Novelist Paul Headrick and poet Robert Bringhurst will be reading at the UBC Bookstore at Robson Square this Thursday, May 28 at 7:00pm. Admission is free. Visit the Robson Reading Series Event Page for more information.

Paul Headrick, finalist for the 2009 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, teaches literature and creative writing at Langara College. His fiction and creative non-fiction have been published in many journals, including The Malahat Review, The Antigonish Review, Image, and The Vincent Brothers Review. His charming first novel, That Tune Clutches My Heart (Gaspereau Press), explores the nature of us-and-them conflicts, told through the experiences of May Sutherland, a 1948 high school student caught between warring factions of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby fans.

Robert Bringhurst, recipient of the 2005 Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence, is a poet, prose writer, typographer and linguist. His manual The Elements of Typographic Style (Hartley and Marks) has been translated into ten languages and is now one of the world’s most influential texts on typographic design. Bringhurst’s latest book, Selected Poems (Gaspereau Press), brings together selections from several of his collections of poetry and a series of new poems, “The Living.”
