Addicted to novelty since 2001

Merton Reading at the Library

My mother-in-law is Lynn Szabo. She’s the chair of the English department at Trinity Western University, and a reknowned expert in the life and works of Thomas Merton. Merton was a Trappist monk, writer, poet and essayist who lived a fascinating life.

Lynn has edited a new collection of Merton’s poetry, In The Dark Before Dawn. There’s a book launch next Thursday at the library, where she’s going to be reading from the collection. Everybody’s welcome:

Thursday, June 2nd 2005 at 7:30pm
Central Library
Peter Kaye room – Lower Level
350 W. Georgia St.

And admission is free–what’s not to like?

    I don’t the fact that it’s too far away from Saskatoon, for me to come. How interesting! I’m just now getting into Merton — I’d love to go.

    Hm, that should read I don’t LIKE the fact. I really must proofread.

    Small world. I happened on your site because you and I are both technical writers and I was interested in what you were doing with your career. But by coincidence I almost did my masters thesis on Thomas Merton. I bet I know some people who know your mother in law, even though I live way out here on the east coast.

    Merton was definitely a blogger before there were blogs. Take a look at *Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander*– basically a blog written in the early 60’s.
