Good news all fans and practitioners of Canuck People's Poetry - Terry Barker's long awaited book has just been published by Synaxis Press! Continuing Chesterton: The Passage and Revelation of Canada's Renaissance Roots in People's Poetry is now available from the publisher:
Terry also has copies he's willing to sign and ship - let's show him support with this first batch of books. (BTW there are some very amusing and quirky typos in this first edition - who among us knew that Milton Acorn's middle name was Bruce Meyer!) Contact Terry at:
or write him at:
22 Deerford Road
I haven't received my copy yet, but I have previously read many of Terry's fascinating essays on Canadian poetry and culture. And if you attended one of the eight PurdyFests, there's a chance you're mentioned and your picture is in there as well.
peace & poetry power!
Chris, Chase & the throngs of Canuckian People's Poets
