Join us at Wintergreen for a rare treat, as Patrick Lane shares his work with an intimate audience in the Wintergreen lodge. We are hosting Patrick at Wintergreen for the first time this summer, and hope that this event will be the first of many. After a scrumptious meal, you will be inspired and moved by Patrick’s words, as he reads from a collection of poetry representing his last half-century as a poet.
Patrick Lane is one of Canada’s pre-eminent poets, winner of numerous awards, including the Governor General’s Award for Poetry, the Canadian Authors Association Award, the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence and three National Magazine Awards. He has published twenty-five collections of poetry since 1966, his most recent, The Collected Poems of Patrick Lane, from Harbour Publishing (2011), and with McClelland & Stewart a novel Red Dog, Red Dog (2008), and his celebrated memoir, There is a Season (2004).
