Au­thor Tasche re­turns to Write Out Loud

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current -

Hil­larie Tasche is a writer and vis­ual artist who grew up in Swift Cur­rent and is now based in Win­nipeg, Man­i­toba. She’s pur­su­ing success as a writer of fic­tion and po­etry.

Hil­larie is a grad­u­ate of the Swift Cur­rent Com­pre­hen­sive High School Class of 2003. Her in­ter­est in writ­ing be­gan with guid­ance from staff mem­bers in the English and Theatre de­part­ments at the Comp. Also, Hil­larie has been shaped by the lifelong artis­tic and lit­er­ary guid­ance of her fa­ther, English teacher turned play­wright, Stew Tasche, and her mother, vis­ual artist, Cyndi Tasche.

When Hil­larie is not at her writ­ing desk, she works as a crim­i­nal de­fense lawyer for youths aged 12 to 18, and is one of the pi­o­neer­ing mem­bers of Man­i­toba’s first Le­gal Aid of­fice ded­i­cated solely to the prac­tice of Youth Law. Her work as a writer is deeply in­flu­enced by the in­nu­mer­able les­sons on the hu­man con­di­tion that one en­coun­ters in the prac­tice of law.

Hil­larie’s first re­lease was Let Us Make Art For­ever, a col­lec­tion of 12 po­ems re­leased in 2016.

We are An­i­mals: Three Dark Fa­bles is a col­lec­tion of short sto­ries that, at first glance, tell of the tragic lives of three an­i­mals, but in truth, show us more about the univer­sal strug­gles of our own species.

Write Out Loud com­mences May 15 at Swift Cur­rent’s Lyric Theatre. Ad­mis­sion is $8. Doors open at 6:30. Lo­cal mu­si­cians, The Billy Bock Quar­tet, (Stew Tasche, Dave Cyca, Ed Doyle, and Gord Nodge) will en­ter­tain at 7:00 and the fea­tured au­thor will follow.
