We were lucky enough to be involved in the launch for Fred's new book Scree, which collects his work up to 1991, edited by Jeff Derksen and published by Talonbooks. The reading featured a who's who of Fred's friends and former students who all read poems from the book, including Karl Siegler, Stan Persky, Daphne Marlatt, Roy Miki, Colin Browne, Larissa Lai, Rita Wong, Deanna Fong, and myself. As well, we were treated to two readings from Fred himself: the first filmed at the Western Front in 1974 and the second live. You can check out the book here: http://talonbooks.com/books/scree
