An Evening with David Helwig

Beaconsfield Carriage House


Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 07:30pm

To date, Canadian poet, novelist, and essayist David Helwig has published close to fifty books and edited numerous others. He has written for television and radio, worked at the CBC, taught at Queen’s University, been Poet Laureate of Prince Edward Island, and named to the Order of Canada. Yet, he remains little known.

David Helwig: Essays on His Works is the first book to gather new essays, an interview, and earlier material in order to introduce and explore Helwig’s body of work while documenting the broad range of his literary talents and accomplishments.

The editor of this edition, Ingrid Ruthig, writer, poet, visual artist, said, “Within any literary community there are those writers who simply go about the business of writing—diligent, dedicated, building a body of work without fanfare. They seem disinclined to court chatter and celebrity, to inflate image and ego, or to stake out a place centre-stage. David Helwig is one of those unassuming craftsmen. Since he first aspired to it more than six decades ago, he has been living ‘the life of a writer.’”

On September 25 at 7:30 pm at The Carriage House, 2 Kent Street, Bookmark and PEI’s Poet Laureate PEI, Deirdre Kessler, along with twenty Island poets and writers, will celebrate David Helwig and his literary accomplishments. This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
