"With her debut middle-grade novel in verse, Stay, Saskatoon poet Katherine Lawrence pulls the metaphorical rabbit out of the hat, creating a touching, balanced portrayal of a young girl dealing with her parents’ separation, her father’s cancer diagnosis, and her unyielding (and long-unfulfilled) desire for a pet dog."
"While Wild Rose as historical fiction is a departure both from Butala’s more philosophical work on the natural world and landscape of Saskatchewan, and her modern novels and short stories, it is a highly accomplished amalgamation of both genres with the added elements of history and cultural memoir."
"Lawrence is an accomplished author with several books of poetry for adults to her name; here she pens a novel for young readers so profound and complex in its voice and subtle in its story that multiple readings are necessary to appreciate all the nuances."
"Lawrence firmly believes that writing saves lives. It teaches empathy, it’s a means of escape, it helps readers express themselves. And when you have a book, you have a friend."
"At her book launch on Tuesday, the Regina-born author was as much a part of making sure everything went smoothly as she was the centre of attention. She signed books, greeted friends, read a chapter from her new book and spoke with the children from Davin Elementary School that attended."
"Written by Canadian Horticulturalists Sara Williams and Hugh Skinner,” Gardening Naturally” gives you the all natural skills you need to help your lawn, flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees and shrubs thrive. So informative."
