Qwerty Reads: February Recap

Between a few days of false-spring weather, another NB ice storm, a rain storm or two, and that thing called life that sometimes involves actually doing work, it’s been a busy week since February 18th’s latest Qwerty Reads.

This month’s instalment featured readings from all kinds of new friends: UNB’s new writer-in-residence Naomi K. Lewis, and six (six! our cup floweth over!) first-year MA students

Thanks to our beloved readers, the staff at the Capital Complex, the Brunswickan for buzzing about our event, and CHSR for interviewing Qwerty Reads organizer Ryan and writer-in-residence Naomi K. Lewis.
