Downtown Fredericton's Culture Crawl)
Where? Gallery 78, 796 Queen St., Fredericton
Please drop by Gallery 78 August 1 for a launch and celebration of a very special Summer Fiction Issue of The Fiddlehead, an issue which boasts new stories from Dan Woodrell (writer of Oscar winner Winter’s Bone), Craig Davidson (writer of the film Rust and Bone and a UNB grad), local author Raymond Fraser, and three accomplished Irish writers, Mary O’Donnell, Mike McCormack and Eoin McNamee, the latter a Man Booker Prize nominee. There is a tense tale by Lt. Col. Wick Walker, who writes about stealth dealings with warlords and Saudis in Afghanistan just as the Russians are leaving, based on his own hair-raising experiences, and there are stories from newer young Canadian writers Amy Jones and Clea Young.
Please join us for brief readings from the Summer Fiction Issue to celebrate this very strong issue of The Fiddlehead.
