Government House, Regina, Saskatchewan: An Illustrated History

From its humble origin as a one-storey frame house to the stately brick structure of today, the story of our Provincial Government House is a long and interesting journey. This illustrated history of Government House brings to life the role of the vice-regal representative and explores the many uses the building itself has served, taking the reader on a narrative and photographic voyage from its unpretentious beginnings before the birth of our province to its present-day regal splendour. Published in celebration of the 125th anniversary of Government House in 2016, Government House, Regina, Saskatchewan: An Illustrated History is a trip through time that preserves, promotes and enhances the important place Government House occupies both in Canadian history and in these modern times.

Vigilante

In 1880, Johannah Donnelly and her six dangerous yet devoted sons were a fierce Irish immigrant clan unafraid to take what was theirs – and they paid for it with their lives. Now The Black Donnellys have returned from the dead to remind us of a shocking chapter in Canadian history. A riveting new rock musical about family, forgiveness and frontier justice from the creators of Frankenstein and Nevermore.

Musically, he performs genre-bending, soul-driven tunes that serve as a soundtrack to the novels he writes. The music is rich in emotion, varying from fun to serious, and blends rock-pop catchiness with anything from funk to punk, steeped in the jazz traditiof improvisation and spontaneity.

Documentaries by Walter Hildebrandt

Taking its inspiration from director Werner Herzog's concept of "ecstatic truth" and recalling D.W. Griffith's silent film classic Intolerance, poet/historian Walter Hildebrandt's ambitious new book of poems is a searing denunciation of the exploitation of the poor and powerless at the hands of the wealthy. In forceful, unadorned language, Hildebrandt draws a clear line from historical outrages such as the Dakota Wars of the 19th century and the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike to injustices in present-day England, Cuba, and Canada.

Documentaries urges readers to confront stories that are hiding in plain sight, but which are in danger of being lost when their truth goes unspoken.

Mack the Naïf by Charles Nobel

Since 1972, Charles Noble has been publishing poetry in a modest Canadian literary underground. A few of the titles that have emerged are Doubt’s Boots, hearth wild/post cardiac banff, and Wormwood, Vermouth, Warphistory, which won the 1996 Writers Guild of Alberta poetry award. Also a dedicated farmer, Noble works the land of his family’s farm in Nobleford, Alberta and spends a significant amount of time in Banff. Noble’s Mack the Naïf is all over the place, spinning an incidental mosaic, where mini-narratives or short hairs are dropped and picked up to ghost then a trans-narrative over a gallimaufry of pop-up poems, living ends against this kindly arc.

Encountering Riel

William Lorimer is a young poetry student who forgot to resign his commission in the Canadian militia. When he is called up to join the fight against the Métis rebel leader, Louis Riel, Willie is scared, but bolstered by his own naïveté. The journey to the heart of the rebellion is long and full of anguish. When the militia reach the West, things go tragically wrong, and their once-heroic cause is marred by the cynical realities of politics, and the harsh realities of war.
