Where is your favourite secret space in Regina?
Maybe your favourite Regina space is included in the new book from the CPRC
Press: Regina’s Secret Spaces: Love and Lore of Local Geography. The book
launch will take place Thurs., Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in The Terrace, 10
Research Drive, Regina Research Park.

Regina’s Secret Spaces is a collection of essays and poems by more than 80
writers, artists, architects, patrons of the arts, and cultural theorists
who answered the call of editors Lorne Beug, Anne Campbell and Jeannie Mah
to share their favourite Regina secrets.

"Regina’s Secret Spaces is the realization of a long-term dream I’ve had to
create an unconventional guidebook that would collect and popularize the
diverse and fascinating insights creative people have into this place," Beug

While some submissions were quirky or whimsical, others were more serious
and theoretical, examining power structures, both past and present, and how
these have shaped and continue to shape the city. "For me, the built
environment is language writ large. Regina’s Secret Spaces allowed us to
compile Regina stories, each text and photograph leading to a real location,
a real place, to visit," says Campbell.

Playful or reflective, each essay presents something profoundly personal and
engaging and expresses a deep love for Regina. Many of the pieces are by
current and former University of Regina faculty and staff, while the
principal photographer is Don Hall, head of the University Photography
Department. Other contributors now live in other Canadian cities; however,
their writings reflect the affection and connection that they still have for
Regina. This eclectic collection serves as a thoughtful and
thought-provoking cultural geography of the Queen City.
