Storify: Tribute to Robert Kroetsch, 1927-2011

Robert Kroetsch wrote about the Alberta I knew. I had never encountered such a writer until a Western Canadian literature course at the University of Alberta introduced him to me. I have loved him ever since. Once the news of his death broke, it was clear that he had touched many in the same way. I decided to collect and preserve some of that outpouring with this Storify collection.

As I say at the end, I am grateful to live in a place that grieves when a poet dies.
