Two more readings in Fredericton this week: Qwerty Reads and Greg Bechtel

On Thursday, October 23, Qwerty, the UNB graduate student literary journal, hosts this year's first edition of QWERTY READS. We will be featuring the talent of UNB's English and Creative writing program, along with the book launch of Claire Kelly's poetry collection, Ur-Moth.

Come to the Wilser's Room of The Capital Complex at 7PM to enjoy the cash bar and plenty of time to socialize throughout the night. Here are this month's readers:

Reid Lodge
Michael Meagher
Clair Kelly

Invite your friends! We hope to see you all at the event.


The University of New Brunswick invites you to a free public reading by UNB alumnus Greg Bechtel! We hope you will join us on Friday, October 24th, at 8:00pm at the Alumni Lounge in UNB Fredericton’s Alumni Memorial Building.

Greg Bechtel graduated from UNB in 2004 with an MA in English (Creative Writing) and is very excited to return to Fredericton to read from his first book, Boundary Problems, which was published earlier this year by Freehand Books. UNB professor Mark Jarman describes Bechtel’s book as “a chaotic collection with comic touches, a paranoid Pynchonesque mix-tape of hosers and hipster cafes, office jobs and summer camp confessions, lit theory and online porn. Boundary problems? No problem for Greg Bechtel; his debut is wild, sly, and magnetic.” We look forward to seeing you at this reading!
