Field Notes for the Self: Randy Lundy Micro-Reading for Book Week 2020

On the next full moon, October 1, at 7:00 pm CST, Randy Lundy will be doing a small, socially distanced "micro-reading" of his latest collection of poetry, Field Notes for the Self (U of R Press, 2020), at Regina’s new independent bookstore, The Penny University Bookstore.

The small, socially-distanced “micro-reading” will only have ten seats available. Due to COVID-19 procedures, this event requires mandatory pre-registration and for all of the attendees to wear a mask. The purchase of your ticket reserves your spot and also comes with a copy of Field Notes to the Self.*

The event will also be live-streamed on the SaskBooks' Facebook page. A video of the reading will be made available at a later date.

*If you already have a copy of the book, you may request a different book of up to $19.95, published by one of SaskBooks' Members.If the cost to attend this event presents an economic barrier, please contact SaskBooks at 306-780-9811 for subsidized attendance.

When you arrive at the venue, the host will require registration confirmation and will ask a series of COVID-19 screening questions.

Randy Lundy is a member of the Barren Lands (Cree) First Nation. Born in northern Manitoba, he has lived most of his life in Saskatchewan. He has published three previous books, Under the Night Sun, Gift of the Hawk, and Blackbird Song. An award-winning poet, his work has been widely anthologized. Lundy is also the new Acquisitions Editor for the University of Regina Press’s Oskana Poetry & Poetics series.

Field Notes for the Self, Randy Lundy’s latest work, is an exquisite new collection; a series of dark meditations: spiritual exercises in which the poem becomes a forensics of the soul. The goal of these poems is freedom from illusion, freedom from memory, from “the same old stories” of Lundy’s violent past; and freedom, too, from the unreachable memories of the violence done to his Indigenous ancestors, which, Lundy tells us, seem to haunt his cellular biology. As Patrick Lane explained, with this title, “Randy Lundy has entered the place where the masters reside…”. It is a must-read collection.
