Kate Braid

Kate Braid has had a diverse career including secretary, carpenter, teacher and writer. Her first book of poems Covering Rough Ground won the Pat Lowther Award for best book of poetry by a Canadian woman. Her second, To This Cedar Fountain, was nominated for the BC Book Prize, and her third, Inward to the Bones: Georgia O’Keeffe's Journey with Emily Carr, won the Vancity Book Prize. In 2005 she co-edited with Sandy Shreve In Fine Form: The Canadian Book of Form Poetry. Braid has also written several non-fiction books and essays. She lives in Burnaby, British Columbia. Braid is a devoted (to say the least) fan of Glenn Gould—and of J.S. Bach.
