67 A Tribute to Patrick Lane
Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 8:00pm
Patrick Lane is the author of 27 books of poetry, a novel, a book of short stories and a memoir. His poetry has won nearly every literary prize Canada offers, including the Governor General’s Award and the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence. The Collected Poems of Patrick Lane, published last year, gathered more than 400 poems written over more than 50 years of work. Tonight we honour one of Canada’s finest poets as family and friends offer words in celebration of a man who has lived life large, has experienced joy and pain in equal measure, and whose sensitivity is keenly felt through the many words he’s put to the page over his life.
