“Culture-shaping poets tackle a formidable battery of themes and styles” review in the ‘Canadian Mennonite’ April 5, 2017
—Reviewed by Beth Downey Sawatzky
Why wait for Spring? This is a great time to give someone special, some special Rhubarb! Do you know a young Menno with whom you’d like to share the literature we’ve anthologized in 2017? Our last 3 issues are like amazing time capsules of the fine writing that has come from good folks of Mennonite background in the past 50 years. Please consider purchasing and having us mail one of these fine collections to that loved one this holiday season. Give “29 Mennonite Poets” to that aspiring poet in the family, give “9 Mennonite Stories” to the fiction reader/writer, and give the eye-opening “11 Encounters with Mennonite Fiction” to someone who needs an introduction to our amazing literary heritage. OR HAVE US SEND ALL 3 FOR THE PACKAGE DEAL OF $50 to that deserving person on your list!
Cheques made out to the Mennonite Literary Society will help us pay the printer for these books, and should be mailed to 501-100 Arthur St, Winnipeg MB, R3B 1H3
