UNB Reading Series presents Kerry-Lee Powell

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.

Craig Davidson Reads February 9

The University of New Brunswick would like to invite you to hear a reading by 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.
