Another Celebration for Our Summer Issue

Please join fiction co-editor Mark Jarman, next week's Fredericton Arts Alliance artist-in residence, for a  lunch-time celebration of a very special Summer Fiction Issue of The Fiddlehead. All through the summer, two artists of different disciplines share a studio in the Casemates (historic soldiers' barracks) in downtown Fredericton.

Drop by for brief readings celebrating the Summer Fiction Issue and take a look at the beautiful new issue of The Fiddlehead magazine, 12:45pm, August 29.

The issue 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 writers Raymond Fraser and Rob Gray, and stories from three accomplished Irish writers, Mary O’Donnell, Mike McCormack and Eoin McNamee, the last nominated for a Man Booker Prize.

This celebration is part of the FAA Artist-in-Residence Public Outreach sessions, which occur throughout the summer. They are free to attend and all are welcome. For more information visit the FAA Studio at the Casemates, by the College of Craft and Design, Monday to Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-5.

Jarman, available for consultations during the week at the Casemates, will be sharing the space with Katie Nicholas, who will host a demonstration of basket making on Wednesday August 28 at 2pm.
