Robert Kroetsch prize goes to Standard Candles

September 24th, 2016

Alice received the Robert Kroetsch Award for Poetry from the Book Publishers Association of Alberta at the BPAA awards gala in Calgary, September 16.

The award shortlist included two other highly praised books: Saskatchewan poet laureate Gerald Hill’s collection, The Hillsdale Book, published by NeWest Press; and Nicheby Basma Kavanagh, from Frontenac House.

The awards jury praised Standard candles as “.. an intricate weaving of complex scientific theory with the stuff of everyday human existence in a voice that is thoughtful, wry, and deeply compassionate.”
