There are all kinds of readings happening in Fredericton over the next week starting with tonight! A reminder that Craig Davidson reads at Memorial Hall tonight at 8pm. The event is free and all are welcome!
UNB Alumnus Craig Davidson, author of The Giller Prize short-listed Cataract City, published in 2013 by Doubleday. In his fourth literary novel Davidson presents a tourist town with an uncanny hold over those born within its borders, a place with more to it than first meets the eye. Beyond the gaudy storefronts and sidewalk vendors, past the hawkers of tourist T-shirts and souvenirs, are the townspeople who toil at The Bisk, the local cookie factory. And behind that crumbling façade are the truly desperate: those drawn to gritty alleyways on both sides of the US-Canada border, inhabitants of a shadow world that runs on money exchanged over dog races, bare-knuckle brawls, and night-time smuggling.
Shane Neilson, frequent Fiddlehead contributor, reads at Odd Sundays at Molly's on Sunday, February 15. The reading starts at 2pm, is free, and open to the public.
And this Thursday, February 12, The Cinnamon Café at 469 King Street is hosting a Spoken Word Poetry Night from 7 - 9pm. If you would like to read your own piece for this event, contact Cassidy or Brooke.
