Bookings Podcast FeatureSee more
This time on Bookings, poet and journalist Lindsay Bird discusses her new book of poetry “Boom Time,” published by Gaspereau Press. “Boom Time” tells the story of a young woman in the mid-2000s as she moves to Fort McMurray to work in the Athabasca oil sands. Like many, she’s there to make money in the new gold rush, but the camps can be a disorienting place. Sublime and dangerous. Lindsay discusses her own time in the work camps, the people, landscape, and giant machines. And as always, Lindsay, Paul, and Jesse discuss what they’re reading.
