Ruth Roach Pierson

Doors open at 7:30pm tonight: featured reader Ruth Roach Pierson at the Tree Reading Series. Royal Oak II Pub, 161 Laurier Ave. East, Ottawa

Ruth Roach Pierson reading from her second book of poetry, Aide-mémoire, in front of an Ottawa audience at the Tree Reading Series. Upcoming Tree readers include Steven Price (March 13th) and Don McKay (March 27th where this reading will be held at the National Library and Archives on Wellington Street in Ottawa.) My first experience reading Pierson's work was about 18 or 19 years ago at Concordia University where I read her academic text, They're Still Women After All: The Second World War and Canadian Womanhood for a undergrad history class. It was interesting read as I remember.
