David Carpenter continues his fascinating look at the development of Saskatchewan writing and writers in The Literary History of Saskatchewan Volume 2: Progressions.
Progressions presents another batch of erudite and entertaining essays on a variety of topics covering Saskatchewan's literary development, as well as tributes to some of the major contributors to that history, and a pictorial glimpse into the past.
Writers stopped using typewriters, and even moved beyond the Kaypro computer box for their compositions. The Saskatchewan School of the Arts was shut down, ending the Fort San writing experience. But the Sage Hill Writing Experience quickly rose to replace it. Saskatchewan literary presses found their feet and published important and lasting books. A wave of new writers joined the founders of the province's literary tradition. Responding to this growth in the community, the Saskatchewan Book Awards and the Saskatchewan Festival of Words in Moose Jaw came into being.
The Saskatchewan writing community stormed out of the 20th Century in a frenzy of creativity and accomplishment.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases

After over thirteen years of grooming an eclectic music selection that attracts audiophiles from across the city, our music manager Michael Wolch has been tapped to host the morning radio show on Classic 107.
Our new music manager, Andy Morton, assures a smooth transition. With over twenty-five years in the music business (the Folk Festival, Musiplex, Into the Music, HMV), Andy is poised to make McNally Robinson's music department -- not to mention our great selection of movies on DVD and Blu-Ray -- all you have come to expect, while also adding the flavours of his own unique tastes to an ever-expanding offering of music on CD and vinyl.
So farewell, Michael; you will be missed. And Andy, welcome to the family!
