The University of New Brunswick would like to invite you to hear a reading by writer Kerry-Lee Powell. Her poetry collection Inheritance was published last year by Biblioasis. Inspired by a shipwreck endured by the author's father during the Second World War, and by his struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder and eventual suicide, Inheritance is a powerful poetic debut.
Powell’s work has appeared in journals and anthologies throughout the United Kingdom and North America, including The Spectator, The Boston Review, and The Virago Writing Women series. In 2013, she won The Boston Review fiction contest, The Malahat Review’s Far Horizons Award for short fiction, and the Alfred G. Bailey manuscript prize.
Her reading will be held on Monday, March 30th at 8:00 pm in the Alumni Lounge of the Alumni Memorial Building on the UNB Fredericton Campus. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
