Canadian Writing Comes to You -- Live!
The Reading Series has been bringing cutting-edge Canadian writers to St. Jerome's University for many years.
Each year we strive to offer a range in our slate of visiting writers: well-established and up-and-coming, from the local area and from sea to sea, working in verse and prose and beyond. Experimental and traditional, serious and playful, beautiful and stark, cynical and celebratory -- come and sample the wealth and variety that is Canadian literature today.
These readings are special opportunities to get inside the book -- to hear writers read their own words, and speak about their own writing. Every reading includes an open question and answer session.
All readings are free and open to the public.St. Jerome's is located at 290 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, Ontario.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

A bonus reading for this Winter term -- Robert Paul Weston, a YA author whose novel Dust City has been described as "Chinatown via the Brothers Grimm", while Zorgamazoo "is about saving the universe from boredom. And it rhymes -- all 280 pages worth".
Join us Tuesday 27 March 4:30pm in STJ 2009. The reading is free and all are welcome, so please spread the word!
