Great Regulars: In 1991, Barbara Langhorst's father shot

and killed her mother, then committed suicide. Langhorst, who grew up in Edmonton but now teaches at St. Peter's College in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, approached her debut collection, Restless White Fields, as an aesthetic experiment in dealing with a devastating loss. "You need to weave something to contain it, something daring, so then it becomes art and you don't have to think of the pain every moment," she said in a recent interview.
