Alberta writer Robert Kroetsch dies at 83
Booksellers NZ was saddened to learn the news that Laura Kroetsch's father, Canadian novelist and poet Robert Kroetsch has died in a car accident near Drumheller, Alta. He was 83.
And here is another tribute sent to me by a friend via Facebook:
The Bookman extends his deepest sympathy to Laura who played an active part on the NZ book scene for many years as a book judge and reviewer, and in various admin roles before being appointed Director of the Adelaide Festival last year.
