An Evening with Award Winning Authors
Brenda Hasiuk & Duncan Thornton
Thursday, August 1 at 7:30 pm
Free!

Join award winning authors as they read from their latest books and learn about how cabin life and the writing life can be a good fit.

Brenda Hasiuk’s just-released fourth novel, Swan Dive, (Groundwood/House of Anansi), chronicles the rise and fall of sixteen-year-old Kris, a refugee from the Siege of Sarajevo who finds himself adjusting to life in 1990s Winnipeg while dreaming of making it big on Star Search. Kirkus Reviews recently declared it “bitingly funny and poignant.”

Duncan Thornton (former writer-in-residence for the Winnipeg Public Library) will read from his fifth novel, Transactions — about three kids who can’t come up with a better plan for getting out of Junior High than learning magic. Real magic.Transactions received the Canada Council’s prestigious Lynch-Staunton Award award for mid-career writers.


Slow Spirit – Poor Michael’s Emporium

Comments Off on Slow Spirit – Poor Michael’s Emporium

Summer Concert Series.

Art Rock Trio
Slow Spirit
Natalie Bohrn, Eric Roberts & Justin Ricock
Sunday, August 4 at 7:30pm
Poor Michael’s Patio

Three technically brilliant musicians, fronted by one of our very own baristas, Natalie Bohrn. Do yourself a favour and catch this band…

Winnipeg & Onanole based Slow Spirit fashions sensitive, folk-tinged indie rock around the soul-searching songwriting of singer-bassist Natalie Bohrn. They often experiment with expansive arrangements that borrow sound baths and noise freak-outs from post-rock, meditative pulsations and high-rising melodic arcs from jazz, all while maintaining the vulnerability of folk an roots music. Bohrn’s songs confer themes of misunderstanding, betrayal, and mythologizing in past relationships, intimate portraiture, and healing \existential introspection. Slow Spirit hopes to elevate the Poor Michael’s patio and find new meeting ground for sonic wanderers.
