Elizabeth Brewster Memorial This Week

Please join the UNB community as we remember Elizabeth Brewster (1922-2012). A special memorial will be held this Wednesday, April 24 at 4 pm in the Alumni Memorial Building, 13 Bailey Drive on the UNB campus in Fredericton. The memorial will be followed by a reception and, for those who wish, a visit to Elizabeth Brewster's gravesite at the Fredericton Forest Hill Cemetery. 

Brewster earned a BA from UNB in 1946 and was a founding member of The Fiddlehead; she received an honourary doctorate from UNB in 1982. She is the author of over 30 books of poetry, prose, essays, and memoirs. She is a member of the Order of Canada, a recipient of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal, and a professor emeritus of the University of Saskatchewan.

All are welcome to attend. Click on the Memorial Flier for more details.
