Rusty’s Reading List 2017 | April 4, 2017



Four of the last five books I have read have a rob mclennan connection. I may never have heard of Hawkins if it wasn’t for rob, and I am so glad I did. Hawkins was the first person ever inducted into he VERSeOttawa Hall of Honour and he did a great reading that night.

This book is a collection of poems from throughout his career and it is well worth a read. My favourite were the King Kong poems, though they were not the only stand-outs.

Great book. I am glad I have it.
