As part of its 75th anniversary celebrations, the UNB Art Centre is presenting an exhibit examining the relationship between the Art Centre and The Fiddlehead called The Next Chapter: 70+ Years of The Fiddlehead . From its inception TheF iddlehead magazines featured covers designed by the UNB Art Centre’s own Lucy Jarvis. In the 1960s Editor Kent Thompson began to feature the artwork of Marjory Donaldson and Bruno Bobak.

Three writers: Birgül Oğuz, Karen Villeda, and Betsy Warland. Three different countries: Turkey, Mexico, Canada. Each writer grapples with gender and identity, with loss, with the limits of language, with persistence against the conspiracies of silence, with responding to violence as part of the quotidian, as part of civilian life. On the surface these writers appear to have little in common, and yet their answers, though written separately and thousands of miles apart, seem part of the same conversation.
Please join us at Memorial Hall this Thursday, September 15 at 8pm for a reading by Lee Maracle.
The UNB Reading Series has an exciting line-up for the 2016-17 academic year. Some details still TBA, so check back for details of Winter readings featuring Eden Robinson and Meags Fitzgerald.
