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 October 25th as we welcome Susan Holbrook!
