Award winning poet Holly Luhning's first novel was the topic for discussion at a UPEI reading on Tuesday night. The novel Quiver is one of the the Globe and Mail's best reviewed for 2011. The book is connected to a sixteenth-century Hungarian serial torturer who - it's estimated - murdered 600 servant girls.
