Two Fiddlehead team members read from newly released chapbooks: Ian LeTourneau read from Core Sample, published by Frog Hollow press, and Emily Skov-Nielson read from Volta, published by Anstruther Press. Skov-Nielsen's editor, Jim Johnstone, also read from his Véhicule Press collection The Chemical Life, which was launched in Montreal on October 20th. Other readings from new collections by UNB associated poets included Claire Kelly reading from Maunder (Palimpsest Press), Allison LaSorda reading from Stray (Goose Lane), and Kayla Geitzler reading from That Light Feeling Under Your Feet (NeWest Press, forthcoming 2018).
