Red Deer writer launches a new line of locally made greeting cards

Leslie Greentree will talk about her project Saturday at Sunworks

Red Deer poet and photographer Leslie Greentree is combining her talents by launching a locally made line of greeting cards to be sold at Sunworks.

A celebratory reception will be held on Saturday at the Sunworks store in downtown Red Deer for Greentree’s first card collection.

Greentree is an edgy and observant writer, who has written award-winning short fiction (A Minor Planet for You), and well regarded poetry (guys named Bill, and go-go dancing for Elvis, which was short-listed for the Griffin Prize for poetry). Greentree also co-wrote with her life partner, Blaine Newton, the play Oral Fixations and is working on her fourth book, another short fiction collection.

Greentree is pairing her sharp writing with her unique photographs to create “a fresh, funny, slightly weird” series of greeting cards that capture the essence of “humanity’s pains, joys and quirks.”

She will speak briefly at 7 p.m. in the Coconut Room, upstairs at Sunworks. The bar will be open and party snacks will be served.
