Current Saskatchewan Book Award nominees Dwayne Brenna, Adam Pottle and Elaine M. Will read and sign their shortlisted titles, Stealing Home: Baseball Poems (Hagios Press), Mantis Dreams: The Journal of Dr. Dexter Ripley (Caitlin Press) and Look Straight Ahead (Alternative Comics)-- Sunday Mar 30 2014 2:00 pm in the Travel Alcove, Saskatoon

Stealing Home: Baseball Poems is a finalist for both the University of Regina Book of the Year Award, and the City of Saskatoon and Public Library Saskatoon Book Award.

Stealing Home is not so much about baseball as it is about how baseball has a way of shaping seasons and relationships in our lives. Here you will find engaging poems about the love of the game, and how it illuminates indelible sacrifices we must all endure. Dwayne Brenna teaches drama at the University of Saskatchewan. He is the author of several books, including Scenes From Canadian Plays (Fifth House), Eddie Gustafson’s Guide To Christmas (Coteau), and Emrys’ Dream: Greystone Theatre in Words and Photographs (Thistledown). Brenna grew up in Naicam, Saskatchewan and now lives in Saskatoon. He has played competitive baseball every spring since the age of five.
