Joan Soggie Online Book Launch

Thursday Feb 25 2021 7:00 pm - Zoom, Saskatoon

Join us as we celebrate the virtual launch of Prairie Grass featuring author Joan Soggie. Co-presented by BWL Publishing. 7 PM SK.

Registration is required to directly participate in the Zoom webinar. It will be simultaneously streamed on YouTube and available for viewing thereafter.

Prairie Grass spans two centuries and tells a story as big as the Great Plains and as easily missed as an earth-hugging prairie crocus. First Nations, Métis and settlers live out the consequences of decisions made before they were born. Most of the people and some of the places are fictitious. All the history is true.


A lifelong Saskatchewan prairie dweller, Joan Soggie lives and writes in the village of Elbow on Lake Diefenbaker. Living all her life in the prairies has led her to explore the many mysteries that cloud our past. The organic relationship between the land and its people was the theme of her non-fiction regional history book, Looking for Aiktow. This theme carries on throughout her quintessentially-Saskatchewan historical novel Prairie Grass.
