The Reading Series - Deanna Young
Date: Friday, November 22, 2019
Time: 04:30 PM
Location: St. Jerome's University, SJ1, 3027

The Reading Series has been bringing cutting-edge Canadian writers to St. Jerome's University for many years.
 

Each year organizers strive to offer a range of visiting writers: well-established and up-and-coming, from the local area and from sea to sea, working in verse and prose and beyond. Experimental and traditional, serious and playful, beautiful and stark, sceptical and celebratory -- come and sample the wealth and variety that is Canadian literature today.
 

These readings are special opportunities to get inside the book -- to hear writers read their own words, and speak about their own writing -- followed by an open question and answer session.

 

We hope that you will join us on November 22nd as we welcome Deanna Young!
