Members of the public have two opportunities to experience a reading, talk, and book signing by poet, artist, and 2008 TRU honorary doctorate recipient bill bissett. Winner of the 2007 George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award, bissett is the author of over 70 books of poetry and two novels, as well as children’s books.
He will read some of his work of the 1970s and 1980s, as well as more current work, on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Thompson Rivers University’s Old Main building.
On Thursday, Sept. 26 bissett will read from his current work at 1 p.m. at Chapters Indigo on Hillside Drive, Kamloops.
These are opportunities to hear the man James Reaney called “a one-man culture” and “ a lesson to us all” share his wit and wisdom, and perhaps even discover why Margaret Atwood said, “bill bissett is my astral twin.”
