Catherine Hunter is a poet and novelist whose books include the poetry collection Latent Heat (McNally Robinson Manitoba Book of the Year, 1997) and the 2015 novel After Light, the story of an Irish-American Canadian family spanning four generations and four different countries (Ireland, Brooklyn, Holland, and Canada). It's a novel about love, war, trauma, and the power of art, and yes I just called Brooklyn a country. Catherine has the best day job in the world, teaching creative writing at the University of Winnipeg. For more information, see or Catherine Hunter's Facebook page or Catherine's profile on the UW website. Or read about After Light on the website of the publisher, Signature Editions.
