SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 SASKATCHEWAN ARTS BOARD POETRY AWARD

In this new collection, two-time winner of the Saskatchewan Book Award for Poetry Gerald Hill fuses verse, prose, history, photography, and his own life's story to create a uniquely personal document of mid-century life in Regina's suburbs, one that peels back placid suburban archetypes to expose the messy, challenging systems churning underneath.

Praise for Hillsdale Book :

"It's a mark of his skill as a poet, prose writer and researcher that he's able to show Hillsdale, which lies between Albert Street and the University of Regina, south of 23rd Avenue, for what it was, and is: a place of innovation, hope, and occasional tragedy."
--Will Chabun, Regina Leader-Post
"With maps, photographs, drawings, interviews, and the poems themselves, Hill transports us to the brand new life of a suburb, postwar hope and abundance springing forth in new houses, many children, schools, and the multitude of little stories that make up lives."
--Bill Robertson, Saskatoon Star Phoenix
