In Stone Boat, Kristen Wittman draws on both her rural upbringing and her experiences as a lawyer to create a deft poetic biography of a man who has lost all to the modern world."Kristen Wittman gives us the haunting voice of Franklin, a prairie farmer who struggles with the memory of family tragedy, his failing health, and the death of the family farm, all in order to accept the inevitability of his own end. Stone Boat is a long poem evocative of poetry's beginnings."-Clarise Foster, author of The Flame Tree
Kristen Wittman was born in Winnipeg and grew up on a farm next to Headingley Penitentiary. She received her law degree from the University of Manitoba, where she played field hockey for the Manitoba Bisons. Kristen received her call to the bar in 1996 and now practises in Winnipeg, where she lives with her husband and son.
