It has been almost a century since the painter Tom Thomson was murdered at the age of 39. The mystery of his death has captivated people almost as much as his passionate work. As both a friend and an inspiration to the members of The Group of Seven, founded shortly after his death, Thomson holds an important place in Canadian art. Earth Day at Leith Churchyard: Poems in Search of Tom Thomson is a collection of poems inspired by the paintings and the character of Tom Thomson, and by the landscape he loved.
Bernadette Rule, a former professor of English at Mohawk College, is the host of Art Waves, a weekly arts-interview program on Mohawk College radio. She has published six collections of poetry.
