Spring break

April 17th, 2014

SaskBooks office will be closed Friday, 18th April – Monday 21 April for the spring break.

Although some of us are beginning to wonder if there ever is really going to *be* a “spring” this year. We’re going to hunker down with a warm drink and a good book and pit in for the long weekend. Maybe some poetry, to go along with National Poetry Month.

What are you reading this weekend?
