About the author:
Nina Bruck, born in 1923, is a poet possessed of the quickest intelligence and surest eye. Her lyrics, even at their most profound, are leavened by a playful wit and a warm, easygoing sensuality; many of her poems are pure fun. Ms Bruck’s poetry has appeared in the Canadian Forum, in the Canadian League of Poets Vintage 96 and 97 anthologies, and they’ve been read on CBC radio (Morningside Papers). In 1992, she won First Prize in Matrix Magazine's "New Voices from Quebec" Competition. She also brings her talent as a keen observer to photography. Her colour photographic series “Signs of Life” was featured in a solo exhibition at the McCord Museum in Montreal.

Sky of Ink Press was founded with the express purpose of featuring talented and unpublished poets in finely crafted chapbooks. The poetry editors are Raphael Bendahan and Brian Campbell. E-Mail: camino@primus.ca or (514)-526-3418

I would have loved to be there. I just heard her on CBC radio (The Sunday Edition) and am very curious about her. Thanks for the post.
