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.
Our friends at Qwerty, UNB's graduate student literary journal, are launching their new issue, no. 32, this Thursday, January 29 at 7pm down at Wilser's Room, 362 Queen St. There will be readings and Qwerty's redesign will be unveiled.
The University of New Brunswick would like to invite you to a reading by the critically acclaimed novelist Linden MacIntyre, author of Punishment, published last year by Random House. In this new novel MacIntyre presents a powerful exploration of justice and vengeance, and the peril that ensues when passion replaces reason, in a small town shaken by a tragic death.
